Scholarships can change lives


Regardless of our views on Election 2016, we can surely agree on this: All children deserve a quality education. But we must do more to make sure they get it. For more and more families, this goal is already becoming reality through the Opportunity Scholarship Program. This state-funded scholarship has given my own nephew a chance to attend Spirit of Life Christian Academy.

Before enrolling at Spirit of Life Christian Academy, my nephew struggled in public school. Now, he has grown academically and socially. My nephew has supportive teachers and he loves learning.

We are where we are because of opportunity and without the Opportunity Scholarship, my nephew would not be able to attend Spirit of Life Christian Academy. There are many other families like mine across the state and I want them to know about the program that I learned about through Parents for Educational Freedom in North Carolina. I want to tell these families that the Opportunity Scholarship can change their child’s live for the better. My family is proof of that!
