In the brilliant words of Aaron Sorkin (as delivered by Sam Seaborn),
Education is the silver bullet. Education is everything. We don't need little changes. We need gigantic, monumental changes. Schools should be palaces. The competition for the best teachers should be fierce. They should be making six-figure salaries. Schools should be incredibly expensive for government and absolutely free of charge to its citizens, just like national defense. That's my position. I just haven't figured out how to do it yet.
Sadly, none of us has figured out yet how to provide exceptional education to every man, woman, and child in this country. Thankfully, UNCF is doing its part to aid bright students in their quest for higher education.
I recently accepted the challenge of raising money for the UNCF New Orleans 26th Annual Walk for Education. This cause is important to me because it will make education accessible to everyone by eliminating financial barriers for deserving students by providing much needed college scholarships.
With your support, we can do better. You can help to increase the number of scholarships given out by making a donation toward my walk goal. Click the “make a gift” link to sponsor me now.
A mind is a terrible thing to waste.
