A few weeks ago the assistant principal of KIPP Sunshine Peak Academy asked me if I could share my personal story in a presentation to the 7th graders and 8th, in the hopes that they could learn a few life lessons from my experiences.
This week, we launched an ad campaign in support of the funding measures for Denver Public Schools and Aurora Public schools. Our focus: the kids who inspire us to do this work. These students from DPS and APS are representing their own personal dreams for the future. Their request to voters is to help them get there by voting YES on 3A and 3B in Denver and YES on 3C in Aurora.
