Sunday, October 27, 2019
At our meeting this week we welcomed Billy Staples from BEST, Inc (Building Educational Support Teams). Billy shared with us about the impact of mentoring on student success.  The group works with students in the Lehigh Valley to provide mentoring and financial assistance so that students can fulfill their dreams of obtaining a college education. Mentors meet with students over a two year period to help support them in their goals. Billy shared some success stories with us from local students who have since graduated college and are giving back in our community. We also heard from Bradley Schifko, Interim CEO at Innovative Arts Academy about his experience with the program in his school.  Brad shared about impact personal connection has on the success of students and how important it is for students to have mentors and people that care.  For more information:
