"Many of the kids in my school and community need help getting their basic needs met. If someone gave me a million dollars, I would open a school-based health center to help meet students' medical needs. A place where kids can get health care when they're sick or see a dentist. I would also open a place where parents can have access to washers and dryers so they can have clean clothes without spending money at the laundromat. I would use this to help connect parents to community services in one location. I would also get books into kids' hands. Many of our kids don't have books at home, and I know how important it is to have books to call your own."Kara Davis (AR '16)
