GOONS Good Man of The Year Award: Azel Prather

Besides being the funniest person I know and family, Azel Prather Jr. aka @Hail_Zel is an outstanding leader and amazing pre-K and Kindergarten Teacher at KIPPDC. This year being the first year of the GOONS Good Man of The Year Award I felt obligated to dedicate this to someone I can personally vouch for and deserves the recognition that we as a community sometimes forget to show our stand up guys.

Zel has outdone hisself this year by raising enough money through donations to handout 350 wrapped presents to every kid in his school for Christmas. Gaining acknowledgment from News outlets across the nation, Zel’s christmas spirit has touched so many people and inspired so much holiday cheer. Using his polarizing personality and effortless funny IG live shows to bring in more and more contributions, Azel has given over $1300 worth of gifts away to well deserving kids in an impoverished community, and joy to families struggling to make a way for the generation following behind us. These kids will remember this day for the rest of their lives. Im so proud of my cousin and all he does for the community as well as his supporting his comedy grind and to see him flourish with these kids is really an amazing sight to see. Being selfless and a role model, Zel deserves every award and blessing coming his way!

Continue leading by example and spreading the positive energy Zel, as we continue to Grow A New Generation(G.A.N.G.) and Get Out Of Negative Situations(G.O.O.N.S.).
