Volunteer Spotlight: Meet Lauri
Lauri worked with Juan all year long as his tutor to improve his reading levels. With much encouragement and hard work, Juan not only moved up his reading level but increased his GPA to 3.4! Now Juan stands tall and confident in his abilities to get good grades and in his future.
The whole staff is thrilled with Juan’s growth. Thank you, Lauri!
