Mike Brooks"Growing up in Nelsonville taught me to value and appreciate small-town America and the importance of educational opportunities to ensure the success of our region's families and hometowns. "
Leona Hughes"If these students are given a chance, they will surprise us. There is talent, interest and willingness to give back. It’s the ones who succeed you have to pay attention to because they can make the beginning of a change."
