The Town Hall was hosted by comedian Steve Harvey he is hilarious and has a heart for education.
He encouraged us to participate in the program, presented a video of a local teacher from Beecher Hills elementary school and a parent from Legacy Christian Academy who have successfully implemented the program in their schools.

Steve Harvey was joined on stage by the illustrious Susan Taylor, former editor in chief of Essence magazine and founder of National CARES Mentoring Movement.
