Energized Engagement Inspires ImpactHigh school students desire an outlet to learn and lead. Most programs that transfer information with speakers, seminars, or books offer short-term motivation but long-term frustration without an outlet for action.

We are currently in three schools in the Marion County Community: Meadowbrook Academy, West Port High School, and Trinity High School. Jeromy and I have been impressed with our youth in action, embracing the community as their own. Collectively, they have packed hundreds of packets of food for the hungry and are in the midst of working on their December projects where they will be blessing various groups across the county.
