I hope and believe that the world can be a better place when every child knows that her voice matters, and when the balance of power shifts enough to allow all of us to listen. Serviam is an agent for that magnitude of transformation.

When I visited Serviam for the first time I met a student who told me that her goal was to learn as much as humanly possible. At that moment I knew that this was the right place for me. It is so important to give students who want to learn the best opportunity to do just that.

SGA is an exceptional school with dedicated and inspiring teachers and staff with a mission that I truly believe in. I volunteer here to help in any way I can to further the program and goals of the school. For the past 6 years I have seen the program in action, and for the most part, the resulting transition of the students from 5th grade through 8th grade has been outstanding.
