GEAR UP for the PROMISE Site Facilitator
"I believe the K20 Center is important to stakeholders because the work we do is valuable and necessary. Meaningful change doesn't happen without dedicated individuals who believe their work can actually provide that change, and I believe that's what we try to accomplish day in and day out."
