"There are many reasons why giving to a community is important to me; one of the reasons is the culture and diversity. Another and my most favorite reason is, the schools I attended within my community! Some of the teachers I had as kid helped mold me into the man I am today; all of them had a major impact in my life. One of the reasons why I pursued my education and career in education was to hopefully be able to give back to these kids the same way some of these teachers did for me." - Milton Knox
