60 Examples of Detroit Genius

Detroit youth possess genius. Their talent comes in all forms: academics, arts, sports, service to the community, and more.

To celebrate Detroit genius, we asked the community-at-large to let us know of young people who astonish and inspire.

Every two weeks from June 8 through August 28, 10 examples will be added. Check out all of our running list of Detroit Genius honorees below and share this blog using #DetroitGenius.

Here are just a few of our incredible honorees:
The DEPSA Varsity Girls Basketball Team: State Champs
Hunter Bailey: Super Reader
Kaleb Waterman: Music Producer
