"My school volunteer time is the high point of my week."
"The children are precious, and being a part of their education has been uniquely rewarding."
"I start my morning at PreK with a group hug. There is seriously no better way to start a day!"
As the founder and director of Adopt-a-Class TN, I wish to thank the many volunteers who have donated countless hours to the education of our local children. The generosity of our community has also provided year-round school supplies and help support many educational projects. Our efforts are very much appreciated by the faculty and students of our adopted schools. Adopt-a-Class began at one school with 14 volunteers. Five years later, over 100 volunteers serve 3 schools in many different ways, and we are a legally recognized charitable organization. It is my honor and privilege to be associated with my very special Adopt-a-Class family.
