"If you know it is something that will help students, don't stop trying"
Kayla Reinenger ('15) felt strongly about giving her students the same opportunities she had in high school - including a life-changing trip to Spain. Here we join her in the classroom as she reflects on her time in the Mississippi Delta and the steps it took to make the dream of a European field trip for her students a reality.
How do we bring the depth and richness of African American history alive for our students? Our corps members and partner organizations have a few ideas! In part three of our Black History Month series, we spotlight three student-driven projects that celebrate the past, present, and future of black lives in America.
This fall, we visited the Sunflower River Gospel and Blues Festival in Clarksdale to hear how our partners support student brilliance. Turns out there are all kinds of ways to shine light on the brilliance in our state!
