Letters from the Lunchroom is a podcast that shows you a new side of Communities In Schools of Mid-America, a non-profit which provides support services for at-risk students. As someone who has worked with non-profits for the past 10 years, Victoria Partridge knows that people who engage with non-profits have a story to tell, and she wants to hear that story. From students to staff members, and alumni to volunteers, Victoria connects with people of all backgrounds to discover the journey they took which brought them to Communities In Schools. Join us in the lunchroom to hear these stories, which are always touching, occasionally heart-breaking, and often surprising.
In this episode, we talk with Sarah Stockebrand, Site Coordinator at Chanute High School (Chanute, KS) and CIS student Darci Marshall. Sarah and Darci share insight to their relationship, including the ways in which Darci overcame her barriers to graduate high school and become the first recipient of the Tyler Gerhardt Memorial Scholarship. Tune in for this very special opportunity to gain insight into the relationships our Site Coordinators hold with the students they serve.
