Randy Novak

Co-Founder and Executive Director

Randy and his friend, Patrinell Wright, challenged high school students to create a better tomorrow and Shirts Across America was born. Novak used his media experience and the King Classic, honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., to help the people of the Gulf Coast. Randy has given his hands-on support guiding this organization from its inception. He has worked with over 3,000 high school students and volunteers over the last ten years in Mississippi and New Orleans. People have described Randy as a community leader and a doer of extraordinary things, which he shrugs off and states, “I’m just an ordinary guy”.
