On April 24, 2016, Ed, Lee and I will participate in the Hill Mile to help students and teachers gain access to the resources and suppor they need through The Hill Center. The Hill Center helps students who learn differently or have simply been left behind reach their potential by providing with the foundational academic and executive functioning skills to be successful. In their words, quite simply, "At Hill, I learned that I could learn!" Hill also equips teachers with the training and tools they need to reach diverse learners and support their growth. Reaching 800 students directly, 1,200 teachers, and 18 district partners across NC, The Hill Center is making a difference. Yet too many students and teachers miss out simply because they do not have the financial resources to access Hill programs. All proceeds from The Hill Mile will provide these teachers and families with much-needed scholarships and financial aid. Help me help Hill empower more teachers and students to be their best selves!
