I began working with Grade A Plus Inc. through a job readiness program when I was 16 yrs old. As the mother of a child in the program, I continue to support with the hopes of sharing with more families the experiences, community, and encouragement that have positively impacted my family for two generations.

Introduced to Dr. Threat through a co-worker, I quickly discovered her sincere passion for helping children in the community.  It is a reward to work along side Dr. Threat and other team members who are advocating for children in the community by providing them with educational and enrichment opportunities.

Joining the board for Grade A Plus Incorporated came through ministry connection with the Executive Director, who I fondly call Dr. "J". Being married 38 years to a pastor makes me appreciate the opportunity to be a part of this organization. As I've witnessed first hand the powerful affect this non-profit organization has on  the overall well-being of those it serves, literally saving lives through academic success.
