WWE Wrestler Titus O’Neil takes minority high school students to see Black Panther

After delivering a motivational keynote at St. Petersburg College’s Dr. Mac J. Williams Academic Excellence Award Ceremony for Mid-County, Thaddeus Bullard, known as Titus O’Neil, felt compelled to make a greater impact. With the recent debut of Marvel’s Black Panther movie, O’Neil declined his speaker retainer and decided to take the award recipients to see the movie

More than 70 students from the Mid-County ceremony will watch the movie with O’Neil at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 14 at the Studio Movie Grill, 7718 113th St. N., Seminole.

During the month of February, St. Petersburg College hosted three Dr. Mac J. Williams Academic Excellence ceremonies for minority Pinellas County high school students who achieved a 3.0 or higher GPA. The ceremony honors the memory of Dr. Mac J. Williams, Sr., the first African-American to be elected chairman of the Board of Trustees at St. Petersburg College.
