Our Success Starts With Community

"The PANDO Initiative connects students to needed resources, which enables them to stay in school, to thrive, and to succeed in life.  This will accomplish our mission and will teach students to pay it forward, ultimately strengthening and benefitting our community.  As a former school principal, I can attest to the value of having this priceless program in our  schools."

-Susan Hussey, Community Volunteer, Donor and former Board Chair of The PANDO Initiative
