Trevonte Jamal Marks
The 15-year-old “held the house together”
He was a tenth-grader at Charter High School for Architecture and Design in Philadelphia. He was family-oriented and loved his siblings, according to his grandmother. “[He] held the house together,” she said.
“[He] showed up every day,” the interim CEO of his school said. “He was trying do the right thing.”
