A Note from our Executive Director
Fall is here and many things are taking place with The L.O.T Initiative! The Carthen Scholars are almost finished with their first quarter and this includes our two newest scholarship recipients.
Our Team99 T.I.E.S that Bind Mentoring Program for Junior High School students is underway and our end of the year Operation Christmas Child Operation is in full effect.
I hope you all enjoy reading about our initiatives and as always... I thank you for your continued support and contributions. It is because of YOU that we can impact the lives of today's youth.

Kennedey has also started participating in many civically engaged activities and groups on campus.
