I am so excited about the journey that we are embarking on and look forward to our collaborative work to continue the positive trajectory of the students. I encourage each of you to ask yourself what I can do to make a positive change in the lives of our scholars. I and the entire BTMS family want to be instrumental in assisting you to reach that goal.
