I have been so fortunate to be involved with Reach Prep for the past five years and now as a new member of their Board. Reach Prep is an important organization that brings together an amazing staff, dedicated volunteers, passionate educators and the brightest and most hardworking students I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet.

As a new Board member I am awed by the level of commitment of the staff to the scholars and their families. I attended the luncheon for many years and was impressed by the youngsters and the mission. As I have become more involved I am learning so much more about the breath of the program. It is changing lives in meaningful ways. This year marks the 20th class of scholars, a very impressive record.

For the past three years I have been a teacher in a boot camp that ReachPrep runs in the summer for kids that have graduated from their regular program to provide additional support in areas where the kids need some extra help. I teach financial literacy and I have been in spired by the kids enthusiasm to learn. They are bright, polite, and very attentive. The experience is so uplifting that I really look forward to working in the ReachPrep program every summer. My enthusiasm for the kids and the program have led to my being asked to join the Board which I I eagerly accepted just so long as it doesn't jeopardize my teaching in the boot camp. I was assured that there would be no problem doing both. Robert S. Salomon, Jr.
