(APR 22) In a definite "Cool Story" of the week on WBAN, one of the sports star athlete amateur boxers, Tiara Brown, of Fort Myers, Florida, was chosen to be the "Grand Marshal" at Sunday's Dunbar Easter Parade that took place down Martin Luther King Blvd. in Fort Myers, Florida.

Brown a role model not only "in" the ring, but "out" of the ring told WBAN, It was a beautiful parade and I was honored to be the Grand Marshal.

Brown was dressed in her USA Boxing attire, and she autographed over 200 photos and passed them out at the parade.

It made me feel really blessed to be able to be a good public figure in the community where I was raised. To be able to be a positive figure in a community filled with negativity really made my holiday a very special one, added Brown.

Brown told WBAN that the Fort Myers PAL Boxing Team was the  first team she began boxing with.

She said, "After age 18 and you finish high school you are too old to box with the PAL.   But they still come to all of my functions and celebrations and they have many of my news articles and pictures hanging on the wall of the gym."

WBAN asked Brown where she sees herself in the future.  She told us, "I am looking forward to the 2016 Olympic Trials. I have no desire to turn pro at this time, I am honored to be an amateur boxer and represent the country against other countries."

"My goals in the ring are to always show good sportsmanship and of course to win the fight. Out of the ring,  I strive to be a better Christian and role model for kids and teenagers who come from communities like I do. Communities full of violence and drugs and poverty. It's not where you come from that makes you who you are, it's how much determination and ambition you have within you that counts."
