Thanks so much to Ernie for making it possible to Mentor our 96 students these last two years.

BTW. The school mascot is a Bear, hence the two student selected names:
Last year--- "Bearforce One"
This year--- "Purple Bearon"

Can't wait for next year's naming vote.

Thumbs up Awesome guys!

What an awesome program. It is impossible to understand how this improves lives for so many people for so many years to come.
I know Joe, Ernie, Jennifer, Richard Van and all the other volunteers see this everyday.

Thanks you guys for raising the bar and challenging all of us to question the status quo at our schools and helping kids learn real skills of working together, solving problems and accomplishing a goal that seems unimaginable.

Thanks!
