Many Thanks For Helping Students In Need


As the SWAP (School to Work Alliance Program) coordinator for Park School District, I recently had an opportunity to see the Estes Valley community in action. One phone call can lead to many rewards in this day of economic trials and tribulations.

One of my clients needed money to attend Park School District’s newly sponsored GED (General Education Diploma) program. The $200 cost of the program was more than the client could afford. I called Mike Crabbs who suggested I call Annie Muelener at Crossroads. To make a very long story shorter, the one phone call led to many others who networked as a community with concern for the success of our youth.

Within one day, I not only had the money for my client’s tuition, but a commitment from many others. Their enthusiasm led to a promise to assist other youth in our community as the needs arise.
I would like to thank Marcy Predmore of Interact, the Youth Rotary Program, Bright Christmas and Crossroads Ministries for your speedy intervention. We will ‘pay it forward’ in the future.
