180 community leaders and the Turley Family Foundation stepped up and helped Leadership Memphis raise $52,937 to take 400 Shelby County high school students on local and regional college and career tours.
Over the past 60 days, generous community leaders, like yourself, stepped up to support the future of our great city through the Expanding Horizons College & Career Tours crowdfunding campaign.
It's because of your commitment to empower our community, that we were able to exceed our goal, ensuring hundreds of students have the opportunity to seek the right college and career for their continued success.
These students exemplify the future of our community and by the eight SUCCESS High Schools we work with regularly, the future of Memphis is bright and full of exciting talent.
Stay tuned. This spring, we will re-launch lmcollegetours.com to showcase the 400 students who will embark on the college and career tours; sharing their experiences through video, blogs, photos, and more.
Thank you for being the change you wish to see in Memphis and stepping up to support the future of 400 Shelby County students.
