    Great, thorough article! I oversee the program in Richmond from the CIS of Richmond side, and I can attest to all the hard work my staff (the services coordinators) do each and every day. These students are not typical and come with challenges and issues that affect their ability to learn and stay in school.
    Through our work on the ground, we’re able to connect the students to meaning work, encourage them along the way, and help them realize goals that never knew they had!
    Yeah- to showcasing the work of all PLC staff and administration, they deserve it!
