Omaha, Nebraska (KMTV)-Jamal Hunter had no father, and would have had a hard time without him.
“What a mother can show you and what a father can show you are two different things,” said Hunter. “My mom was a mom and a dad, so I couldn’t learn much, so I needed a dad.”
His mother found 100 black men. There he was paired with Executive Director Marcus Bell.
“We like playing basketball, playing catch, eating lots of food, and trying new foods,” said Hunter. “We went to the library and worked on our studies.”
Since the second year of junior high school, Bell has been teaching hunters in ways that are difficult to express clearly.
“He was there. He didn’t say he would go there. He was there every time he went there. It was very important,” said Hunter.
The hunter said Bell shaped him from a boy to a fine young man.
“I’m probably doing the same stupid thing I was doing. I didn’t hear,” Hunter said.
Bell keeps his promise to the hunter: being there.
“One of our mottos for 100 black men in Omaha is to teach for life,” Bell said.
Ultimately, the hunter knows what he wants to be, thanks to Bell.
“He came into my life and showed me outs and ins, so I want to be as successful as he is,” said Hunter.
The annual fundraising activity takes place on Thursday at noon.Click here to buy or donate tickets Link..
