Retire and move south.

Working with the students has been incredibly rewarding. Seeing the kids learn new skills and being challenged to think in new ways. I especially enjoy seeing students who do not think that they can perform a task overcoming their doubts.

Love working with kids. After spending 3 years with Legos, I wanted more!

Send my kids to the college of their choice so they can support me in my retirement.

I love working with the kids. I enjoy watching them grow, learn from the experiences, and become young adults with a focus. The biggest reward for me is seeing the students proud and excited with their accomplishments.

Raising children

Claudia tricked me and it sounded like fun

Raise 2 successful women

It's great to see how much can be accomplished when a bunch of high school students get together and work hard. I am constantly impressed with their work effort and level of skill. This program is a great head start for some very bright kids.
