Imagine being like Michael and not having someone to look up to when you were a kid. Imagine being like Emma and not having a positive role model to guide you down a responsible path in life. Where would you have ended up? Imagine a community where every child fulfills his or her potential and steers clear of bad decisions. What if every child in Shelby and Darke County graduates high school, attends a college or technical school, and then gives back to his or her community? Imagine the possibilities! What kind of potential would that ignite?
