When, Where, Why: Propel Schools celebrated its 10th anniversary at Propel Braddock Hills High School on Wednesday. More than 3,100 children attend the nine schools with a 10th school to open in Hazelwood by the end of summer. "Our goal is to make quality public school available to every child. We put kids first no matter where they are from," said Jeremy Resnick, co-founder and executive director.
School's In Session: Guests were treated to cafeteria-like snacks, a performance by the Propel Andrew Street High School show choir, and 10-minute classes (like recycle drumming).
#SEEN: Honorary co-chairs Bill and Vivian Benter, who have been involved since the beginning, were on hand for the festivities. "I am so pleased to see the progress and to be a part of it," said Mr. Benter. Also seen were Carol Wooten, Scott and Sue Lammie, Councilman Corey O'Connor, Bob Grubb, Jackie Dixon, Lorie Johnson-Osho and Ilyssa Ringold Unangst.
