Words from Our Board Members


"Nothing is more fulfilling than to see those students thrive and succeed."

Tony Thomas, ASPSF Board Member

"I am truly inspired by our students: the obstacles they overcome and the impact their education has on their children. The success rate speaks volumes about the quality of the organization and the approach."

Andrea Dobson, former ASPSF board member
