Annice Graves
Annice Graves is a native of Louisville, Kentucky, born on September 6th. Her mother raised her and her oldest sister, and her father remarried, producing three other sibling sisters. Ms. Graves comes from modest means and was raised in a culturally diverse environment. At age 9, she began playing the clarinet, which led to ten years of formal classical training. Along the way, several other woodwind and low brass instruments were added to her repertoire.

Ms. Graves graduated with Honors from Shawnee High School in 1982 (ranked in the top five percent of her class) and went on to earn a BA degree in English and Radio / Television Broadcasting from Morehead State University in 1987. Presently, Ms. Graves is pursuing a Master’s Degree in Secondary Education. Simultaneously, she performed duties in the U.S. Army Reserves and college R.O.T.C. program, which provided college tuition assistance. In addition to earning a double major, Ms. Graves actively participated in several social, political and spiritual organizations, ranging from participating in MSU’s Black Coalition to being Assistant Directress of the Black Gospel Ensemble. Morehead State University’s Minority Affairs Department honored Ms. Graves in 1993 as a “Scholar in Resident.”

Summer Internships at Louisville’s Courier Journal (a Gannet subsidiary) and D.C.’s WMAL (AM) – Ranked No. #1 for News Broadcasting, led Ms. Graves to relocate to Washington, D.C. in 1988, where she lived for four years. There Ms. Graves gained valuable broadcasting experience both “on-air” and “behind the scenes.” Briefly, she worked for powerhouse Kathy Hughes at WOL (AM) / MAGIC 102.3 (FM). Simultaneously, she wrote and delivered weekly “on-air” Public and Black Awareness Calendars for WPFW (FM) – Pacifica Radio. Having taught as a Substitute Teacher in Louisville, she continued to teach voluntarily, tutoring English in the D.C. Public School system for two years (as part of an employee-community project).

Ultimately, Ms. Graves’ long-time pursuit of becoming a published author and performer led her to Los Angeles, California in 1992, where she resides presently. Shortly upon her arrival, Ms. Graves began singing in a professional gospel choir, under the direction of Rickey Grundy, and working as a Writing Consultant for a microcomputer company. Her combined talents and experience eventually compelled Ms. Graves to found AG Productions and Style Graphics Desktop Publishing companies in 1993 and 1995, respectively.

Finally, in 1999 she combined her teaching skills, musical ability and mass media experience to establish Nu School Enterprises officially. Ms. Graves is proud to present Nu School Enterprises’ debut program – The Speech Team Connection, which is designed to be musically interactive. Eventually, this four-booklet grammar series, which teaches secondary level students, will be developed into a complete line of multimedia products. Ms. Graves has devoted the past decade of her life to developing this uniquely innovative teaching tool.

this is so totally awesome. Very clever and creative. Lyrical geneious. I hope it the school systems nation wide can adapt to them in urban schools it would help out a lot of the kids who would rather sing and rap that listen to a boring lesson.
