On Wednesday, May 8, more than 200 people joined us for our Annual Spring Luncheon at the Walker Art Center. Funds raised at the event support Way to Grow’s Spring mission of ensuring that every child is born healthy, stays healthy, and is prepared to succeed in school and life.
We were honored to welcome Dr. Kathlene Holmes Campbell as this this year’s keynote speaker. As Dr. Campbell noted during her remarks, it is important for us all to work together to ensure that all children receive a quality education. We need to allow students’ voices to be heard in the classroom, and for educators to dream big. Moreover, it is crucial for us to value and promote diversity in order to provide high-quality education that values all individuals and their experiences.
“Collectively, we have the answers,” said Dr. Campbell. “It just depends on whether we decide to move forward together.”
Way to Grow helps give children a strong start by connecting some of our community’s most isolated families to the resources they need and establish a more secure position at home, in school, and within the community.
Again, we are most grateful for the support of our generous donors: You are truly helping us move forward together to transform lives!
