So proud of our Fort Loudoun Middle School Launch staff for a fantastic presentation at the CCLC Multi-State Conference in Louisville, KY in October. The audience of about 45 people listened and asked lots of question. Members of the audience were eager to learn what they could do for their students in after school in their own districts. Heather and Jennifer were enthusiastic and the audience left motivated with lots of ideas for their programs. Thank you so much Heather Watson and Jennifer Chastain.
