What participants are saying

“By far, the greatest strength/benefit/learning of the this experience for me personally and our team in Cocke County, Tenn., has been our online collaborations. To interact with highly motivated and gifted people from vastly different communities dealing with similar problems and opportunities is highly motivating and increases learning exponentially.”
