We had over 50 amazing kids in our Read to Lead Academy this fall and the Lord is constantly giving us wisdom about the best tools to help them be successful: Christ, a well-rounded education, and caring adults to walk alongside them. As part of our concern to give students a well-rounded education, our educational coordinator Rachel DeVore took several of our students to the Bessie Smith Cultural Center where they saw some awesome exhibits and had a great time. Afterward, they had a yummy meal with Mrs. DeVore, her husband, and a few other chaperones at Community Pie and the restaurant paid for our students meals!! We just wanted to share this news and thank everyone who helps make opportunities like this possible. Thanks Bessie Smith Cultural Center! Thanks Community Pie! Grace & peace in Christ, The Beth
