Without SCORES, I honestly don’t think I would be in the position I am today. There is a lot of violence, peer pressure and negativity out there. If I fed into that I would have been another statistic. SCORES kept me out of trouble. It taught me right from wrong. It’s the biggest opportunity I’ve had.”

Watching the students develop leadership, team chemistry and take pride in their original works of poetry, is something I truly enjoy.
