Sherrie Stevens knows firsthand how Communities in Schools of Brunswick County Inc. can impact a child’s life.
Her daughter was involved in the After-School Program at Jessie Mae Monroe Elementary School several years ago, and Stevens said she loved going there every day.
“I knew she was in a safe environment that prompted her to do her homework and made her very self-motivated,” Stevens said.
Stevens also reaped in the benefits.
“Me as a single parent, I knew she was safe,” she said.
