Our team had the privilege of enjoying an inspiring lunch and learn with Dr. Shelley Stewart, the 87-years-young founder of WPI agency partner, . From his humble beginnings as a homeless child of color, Dr. Stewart went on to overcome many adversities in a racially divided South and founded one of the most successful and longest-standing advertising agencies in Alabama. He is truly one of the kindest, most inspiring speakers we’ve had to date. To say it was an honor to learn about diversity, equity, and inclusion from the best is an understatement.

InsideOut is a documentary film that explores the lives of inmates at two maximum-security prisons. InsideOut is one of the many tools we use to show students the consequences of not getting an education. 80% of all prisoners are high school dropouts. When asked what they would have done differently to change their future they all said, “Get an education.” Learning saves lives. Our foundation is committed to working with students, parents, teachers, and schools to help them increase graduation rates.
