“You push me to be the best I can be.”

Beckie ManleyFrom the CEO, People + things that inspire us

The STAR Foundation has had a piece of my heart ever since I was first introduced to Katie Orrel and Ellen Murphy close to 5 years ago. I knew I had to help support the magic they were creating for the young women and young men in Brunswick, Georgia.

STAR’s vision is educating brighter futures and their mission is to help end generational poverty in our community by teaching skills needed to enter the workforce and succeed. Katie and Ellen surround their students with love and support and teach them how to get a job, balance a checkbook, use a computer, and ultimately change the direction of their lives. They instill them with confidence and hope and show them that the future can be different than their past.

Today I was forwarded the sweetest note from one of the STAR students who recently graduated from the program. THIS. This is why I serve on the board of STAR. They make a difference. Be sure to check out the STAR Foundation here and see how you can make a difference too. http://www.starfoundation.org/
