In January of 2014, our executive director, Glendora Yarbrough, was given the opportunity to recognize five businesses for contributions towards our organization. As a nonprofit, our work among area learners would be crippled without the support of contributors, donors, funders, and volunteers — and we are ever grateful for those who find it in their hearts to contribute to our cause. Together, we are making strides to impact the lives of Alexander County students, providing them with the tools necessary to succeed academically, and achieve in life.
