"I find great value in contributing to the mission of collective impact because the work of education preparation pushes every other entity to become their best. Educational equity and informed best practices shape business industry, workforce development, and overall community. I am a part of this community and I believe in doing what I can to make it better."

ASPIRE uses a data-driven approach to improve educational access and success beyond high school for all students including underserved, underrepresented, and vulnerable student populations in Leon, Wakulla, and Gadsden Counties.

By working across various organizations, we want to transform systems to ensure that students have the information, support, and guidance they need to succeed after high school.
