If you know the Deramus family, it’s hard not to brag. Sure, they were all leaders in high school, and despite their young age, have already established incredibly successful careers. But if someone introduces you, they will likely start the introduction with the Deramuses’ impressive collegiate credentials: “You know about the siblings, right? Ahmad was the quarterback at Tuskegee University. Kamaria went to Wellesley College, and Raven has degrees from Princeton and Columbia.”
Raven, along with her husband, C.J. Byers, has been instrumental in establishing the Gadsden City High School Alumni Association. With Ahmad now teaching and coaching at GCHS, the Deramuses continue to impact Gadsden in a meaningful way.
