The Tampa Bay, Florida community came together on Thursday to celebrate WWE Superstar and Global Ambassador Titus O’Neil.
Titus O’Neil (real name Thaddeus Bullard), was honored for his dedication to students with a school named after him. Hillsborough School Officials unveiled the Thaddeus M. Bullard Academy at Sligh Middle Magnet School. In his speech, O’Neil said that having the school with his name on it, is the greatest honor of his life.
“This is not about me, this has never been about me and never will be. It’s about kids that are like me and are told, ‘it can never be done.’”
O’Neil started the Bullard Family Foundation back in 2018 with the main mission to provide families and children with resources and to help improve communities in need.
Every year, O’Neil holds a Back-to-School Bash where students in the Hillsborough County School District in Florida receive free sports physicals, dental care, eye exams and glasses, haircuts, food and backpacks filled with much needed school supplies.
