Equity and Excellence • I forgot to tell you......yesterday we had Kruger Plumbing and Heating come to our house to fix a broken water line and Jim was working for them. It was his first day as an apprentice. I was so pleased to see him. It was a great example of why we never give up on the at risk kids. Jim has had so many struggles and it would have been easy to just write him off. I hope he sticks through the whole program and will have a trade in the end. It really made my day and I thought you'd want to know.
