“Thank you Inner City Youth Tutoring, Inc. for your scholarship program to help my family pay for my yearly tutoring this school year. I worried less about my parents not being able to afford to pay for tutoring and concentrated more on my studies and keeping my grades up because of the low expectations my teachers have always set for me because of my disability; therefore, I purposed in my heart to work hard and keep my grades up. I am now a junior in Hazelwood High School’s Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program, a member of the A+ Program, an inductee of the National Honor Society, currently maintain a 3.89- grade point average, and continue to excel in Math and my reading and writing skills have improved tremendously over the past five years and I owe all this to my great Educational Enhancement Coaches (EEC): Ms. Mia (Math EEC) and Ms. Marsha (Language Arts EEC). ICYT has the best EECs who care about their students, cater to their educational needs and give of their time as well as their undivided attention. I am also proud to say I am officially a volunteer math student tutor with ICYT. I thank you once again for everything. Without businesses such as Inner City Youth Tutoring, Inc. and tutors such as Ms. Mia and Ms. Marsha believing I would not be as successful."
