GREATER EXCELLENCE in EDUCATION FOUNDATION
May 11, 2010
The Greater Edgewood Education Foundation is an amazing organization that I am very proud to be part of. Deb Merlock, the founder and Executive Director, has an extreme passion and dedication to carry out this Mission. In "Recognizing the importance of quality education as it relates to the future residents of Harford County, the Foundation strives to make dreams into realities by providing students and their families the tools and resources necessary to support student achievement and achieve post secondary success in college, work and life". This foundation is helping children, who never thought they had a chance to attend college, achieve their dreams.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
