Since 2001, the value of each student’s life at The Neighborhood Academy has been paramount and is imbedded in our mission statement: “…by so doing, our students will break the cycle of generational poverty that has held them captive and deprived society of the full value of their lives”. Our students, who experience constant struggles against inequities and barriers to opportunity every day, are instilled with the notion that their lives are valued and that they aren’t just another statistic defined by others.
We could name student after student; alumni after alumni who are impacting the world in significant ways. Shannon ’08, Isaiah ’11, David ’13, Jeanine ’15, Brittany ’15 - the list goes on and on. Now, our newest alumni are set to chart their own course in society. Alumni like, Quinn ’20.
Quinn, now a freshman at Washington & Jefferson College, is majoring in physics and plans to attend graduate school for Aerospace Engineering. But, before Quinn left for W&J, he and his 17 classmates each received a $3,000 gift from a generous TNA donor.
“Receiving $3,000 was a true blessing for which I am grateful”, Quinn stated. “This gift not only made me feel noticed, but valued and believed in… it’s an investment in my future. The gift motivates me to do my best, so that one day I will be in a position to bless future students”.
Your support, especially now, helps students like Quinn know that they are valued, regardless of income or zip code.
I realize that this pandemic has impacted many economically and otherwise, but if you can, please consider supporting our students who need your help more than ever. Thank you in advance for your support of the students of The Neighborhood Academy… and not depriving society of the value of their lives.
Yours in partnership,
Dr. Anthony Williams, Head of School
