Kenya Moore, a cast member of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” won’t be able to attend an assembly planned in her honor Friday at Cass Technical High School because of a scheduling conflict involving her family. She still plans to donate $20,000 to the Detroit Public Schools Foundation, said Shannon Barr, vice president of a public relations firm that works with Moore.
This is the second time Moore’s appearance — and the donation — has been rescheduled. She was originally going to present a check on Tuesday, but then the event was pushed to Friday. No new date has been set.
“I’m disappointed for a variety of reasons,” said Glenda Price, president of the Detroit Public Schools Foundation. “The students at Cass Tech were preparing to perform. There has been so much anticipation about her visiting the school.”
Moore is a 1989 Cass Tech grad. She was raised on the west side by her grandmother, Doris Grant.
Moore told the Free Press last week that she wanted to help children in the city’s public schools.
