Panel of Queen Palmer Elementary School Parents
Getting Ahead in a Just Gettin'-by World Panel
We will be hearing the stories of a panel of Queen Palmer Elementary School parents who are striving to stabilize their lives and break the cycle of poverty. These investigators invested countless hours and emotional energy investigating their own life circumstances and their community to overcome the “tyranny of the moment,” find solutions to their own problems, take control of their lives and create their future stories. The Panel will be moderated by Regina Lewis, Ph.D. and Bart Givens who, over the past 2 years, have facilitated two groups of parents through this 12-week program.
As you all know, our Rotary club has a long-standing relationship with Queen Palmer Elementary School.  Through the good work and connections of Carol Bach, District 11 was able to obtain a grant from a family foundation to implement Getting Ahead in a Just Gettin’-by World (Getting Ahead) at Queen Palmer.
