It takes a special calling and a good deal of patience to help raise a generation of children. For Asaundra Gentry, it’s just another day in the office.

A teacher for Clayton County Public Schools in metro Atlanta, Gentry attacks the challenge of directing young students on the path of realizing their highest potential. A Detroit native, Gentry received a bachelor of ccience degree in psychology from the University of West Georgia and a master of arts in special education from Georgia State University.

Her accomplishments have opened the gateway for her to become a Sister with Superpowers honoree in Atlanta on Oct. 13.

“Thank you, I just briefly want to say how much of an honor it is to be here in this room amongst all of this black excellence and these admirable women,” Gentry said. “I’m seriously in awe. This award is just confirmation of my calling, my superpower and my gift from God, which is the ability and patience to work with the youth of all abilities. I’ve been truly blessed to have the opportunity to help them unlock their own superpower[s].”

The ceremony was hosted by rolling out‘s Rashad Richey and Christal Jordan. Richey introduced Gentry and encouraged the crowd to give her a standing ovation for her efforts in education.
