Marcedes M. Fuller

"If it weren't for Business Careers High School," says Pillar of Caring Marcedes Fuller, '04, "I wouldn't have had the courage to start my own business at age 17. Everybody cared about teaching us to do things - better." Now 24, Fuller provides training, consulting, and speaking services to organizations and businesses including Monster.com, University of North Texas, and The Open Student TV Network. Founder and CEO of Imagepreneurs Public Image Relations, pursuing his education at University of Houston, Fuller is also an ordained Baptist Minister whose goal is to earn a doctorate degree by age 29. Growing up and attending elementary and middle school in Judson ISD, the Pillar of Caring was attracted to BCHS, NISD's magnet school at Holmes High School. He rode the bus two hours daily to BCHS, where he starred in the recruitment video and was elected President of the Senior Class. He was recently inducted into 100 Black Men of America, Inc., a civic organization that is dedicated to the economic empowerment of the African American community through spirituality, justice, and caring.
