“Having graduated from a public high school with almost 7,000 students, it’s not hard to imagine how a student in a district of over 50,000 like Seattle might fall through the cracks. What I love most about Communities In Schools of Seattle is our focus on building relationships – ensuring that all kids are connected to a caring adult who unconditionally believes in their innate brilliance and potential. I’m incredibly grateful to the adults in my high school who made me feel seen, understood and valued, and am honored to help build that community of support for Seattle students.”
