AIM HIGH
September 21, 2009

My husband insisted that our daughter go to a summer program he heard of called "Aim High." Our daughter said it was the best program she had ever gone to. I became a volunteer, my husband joined the board, my daughter graduated and my son began. My daughter became a volunteer, then a staff member. She wrote her college essay about Aim High. She is now a college graduate working at the Boys and Girls club. My husband continues on the board and I continue as a volunteer. We are an Aim High family.
