"I have been very impressed by REACH Memphis students Kenyona and Shanbria. They have been engaged and active participants during discussions in my Speechmaking course, asking excellent questions and showing high levels of commitment to writing, researching, delivering and revising their speeches. Both Shanbria and Kenyona are on the road to earning honors grades."

"REACH Memphis is special because it cultivates students' potential with the opportunities and support that will help them realize their dreams and passions. As an alumnae and a coach in that process, their success is also my reward."

REACH Memphis Alum and Coach

"Being a coach allows you to give back to the community you live in and to make an impact on someone's life who really may need you at that moment. The biggest reward is the feedback you get from your students when they ask you questions or thank you for helping them."
