Event Update -
Successful Meet and Greet in Atlanta!
Atlanta's alumni community kick-off this past weekend was
a huge success! The well-attended SBAN Atlanta Meet and Greet
took place on Saturday April 22. Alumni had the opportunity
to come together to discuss the impact that SB/BT has had
on them and the impression that they hope to make in the Atlanta area.
The Meet and Greet ended with a productive session where
everyone contributed to planning future events in the area
- so stay tuned!
If you were
unable to attend this event and need more information, please feel
free to contact Andre in the Atlanta office at
404-495-1805. Don't forget that the Atlanta alumni community
is always looking for more volunteers, so pick up the phone
and become active in helping SBAN grow!
Program Update and Call
to Action - Breakthrough Washington
National’s outreach effort to start a Breakthrough program in Washington, D.C.
is starting to produce some great prospects. We are in the process
of narrowing down a list of potential partnerships to a few select
organizations. One of our key potential models in starting a
Breakthrough program in Washington D.C is the new middle school started
by HowardUniversity, HowardMiddle
Mathematics & Science (called (MS)2 and is located on
Howard’s campus. They are very interested in the potential of
starting a Breakthrough program at their school (see http://www.howard.edu/ms2/).
head of the school (Dr. Paul Organ) and Chief Academic Officer (Dr.
Marjorie Lloyd) would like to hear from people and organizations that
know of Breakthrough, including alumni. We would love to have any
Breakthrough alumni contact Paul and Marjorie as soon as possible, and
ask that you just tell them about your Breakthrough experience and voice
your support for starting a Breakthrough program in Washington, D.C.
