Developing today's youth into tomorrow's leaders.

"One hundred years from now
It will not matter
What kind of car I drove,
What kind of house I lived in,
How much I had in my bank
Nor what my clothes looked like.

One hundred years from now
It will not matter
What kind of school I attended,
What kind of typewriter I used,
How large or small my church,
But the world may be .. .
a little better because .. .
I was important in the life of a child."

- Forest Whitcraft
