Why I joined CIS?:
“As the son of a public school educator, the value of education opportunities for all children was always of great importance. My professional connections with Glenn Williams and Alex Holmes (founders of CIS Wake County) introduced me to CIS, but the mission and the people hooked me. I worked as a tutor mentor for several years in Greensboro and enjoyed every minute of it.”
