I continue to work everyday for these kids. I have something deep in my soul for helping that first student in a family not only make it to college, but find success in college. I'm blessed to work in a school district that understandings that lifting kids from poverty means going deeper than literacy and numeracy. We realize that it is about being leaders, citizens, and stewards that know how to reconnect with their community, and build a life and a career based on personal passions. How many families are you introducing to college this year? How many of your kids will break the barrier into college and inspire aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews into believing that college is the beginning of the path to a lifestyle that creates enough space economically in their lives that they have time, talent, and treasure to serve and have empathy for others. Are you dedicated to the First Generation?
