"I cannot imagine not having access to a computer for my future endeavours as an athlete, mediator, singer, poet, and so much more. ...STL has given me a tool that has played a large role in being the first in my family to attend university and make my family proud. My heart is filled with gratitude..." more from Brittiany"

I visited Brittiany's class on May 6th and I was moved by the dedication and spirit of Brittiany, her classmates and her teacher, Kim Thomas.
