Jervonte ‘Tae’ Edmonds graduated from college in 2015, opened a now-nationally known nonprofit while there, worked for two different state elected officials. He’s also written a book for children titled Adventures of the Rich and Famous and, even, designed and created a sneaker. Now, today, he is also in elective office, having run successfully for the state House of Representatives in 2021. The nonprofit he founded? Suits for Seniors, which is an eight-week, life-skills training program for high school students that, if they finish successfully, will provide a custom-made suit. In honor of the program, he is co-hosting the I THINK I Can Scholarship Breakfast at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, August 3, 2022, in West Palm Beach and is still seeking vendors. The first-ever event is being sponsored by the Fredreck A. Deluca Foundation, Verizon and the Steve and Marjorie Harvey Foundation.
