I attended your graduation services Friday night. I want to thank you for giving me a great experience by saying the Pledge of Allegiance and to the Valedictorian who gave the rousing address that brought the crowd to its feet, I say, GO GIRL. I felt so GOOD when the program was over. It was so student oriented that it brought tears to these old eyes. My granddaughter graduated last night and now I know why she loves her school so much. You know, it was a lot like MY high school graduation--small--but with not nearly so much talent. To the visiting speaker from the Department of Education, I thank him for keeping it brief and envoking blessings from God. I live in Kentucky and haven't heard that in YEARS except in church. God bless all of you. Maryann Fenner is my grand child and I know God will bless her--she is a fine young lady and you deserve a lot of the credit. Sincerely, Mary Outland, Murray, KY

Boosting graduation rates, reducing gang involvement and violence, and providing positive male role models are just a few of the common elements of these programs. Yet, the achievement gap between black boys and other peer groups remains extremely wide.
