"The people here are super nice and they are kind of like family here. I came a long way. Now I can read. I still have a little bit to go but I'm getting there. So every time I come to school and go home, I feel like I did a good job. I feel like I'm smart." - Travis L "Because of you, I choose education over incarceration."-John C"Literacy KC is my home away from home." - Glenda A
