“I am saddened to hear of the passing of Marion S. Barry. Councilmember Barry was a friend and champion of Eagle Academy Public Charter Schools. He was an ardent champion of children and quality education for all in the District of Columbia. An early supporter of Eagle Academy from its inception, he most recently lent his support to our acquisition of the former Gladys McGogney School on Wheeler Road in Ward 8, the new home of the Eagle Center. He was an early mentor in my career and I am proud to call he and Cora Masters Barry, friends. On behalf of the Eagle Academy staff, students and Board of Directors we wish the family our sincerest condolences."
