Cheryl Grimes, Lead Family Ambassador
I am a single mom of six beautiful children and have a new grand daughter. My children range in ages 4-25. As every parent knows, I will do everything within my power to help my children succeed.
I joined the MLK Youth Success Movement to help my children and became the Lead Family Ambassador to help other families. Two of my younger sons were struggling in school last year. One was in second grade but the school talked about holding him back a year. He began the program and made progress quickly enough that he was not held back. He is now in third grade and recently received an award in reading.
The other son was placed into the remedial reading group in kindergarten. He began the program and made great progress and was placed into the advanced reading group. The teacher told me he had become the number one reader in her class by the end of the year.
Please join the Movement as a family or a volunteer. Together we can help all children achieve their full potential.
