As we wind down the current school year, I realize I could never have imagined back in August what the world would look like today. Our students and families have experienced tornadoes, a global pandemic that has taken loved ones and isolated us all, job losses, hunger, and the toxic, chronic stress and anguish that accompanied these events.


Of all that, what shakes me, angers me, and scares me the most is the chronic and senseless inhumanity against people of color.

Our mission is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.
