Last year, TODAY'S TMJ4 held our first ever Positively Milwaukee Awards, honoring individuals making an impact in our community. The Inspiring Teacher award went to Kitonga Alexander. Kitonga joins us to discuss his work as a teacher, as well as the the coordinator of the Welcome Home Project from the Alma Center. He's joined by his wife, Javon, who nominated him for the award, and his sister, Rukiya, the Director of Our Next Generation - the organization to which Kitonga donated his prize money.

The Alma Center's next Welcome Home Ceremony will be held on August 16  at 2821 N 4th Street in Milwaukee. For more information, visit
