Love in Abundance has supplied a select group of Caraway's female students with many pre-college opportunities. Ms. Gunnells-Hodge operates a highly-professional organization by bringing a wealth of skill, resources and expertise to the table. Through participation in the program, students have been extended certain opportunities which may not have otherwise been afforded to them. Our students are happy to belong to such an organization that promotes high expectations for academic excellence, peer relations and community service.
