Groves Community!

On Saturday, April 22nd, more than 500 people gathered for an exciting evening to make an impact in the lives of students across our state and to celebrate and raise important funds for GLO. These critical funds provide tuition assistance for our students and expand our literacy partnerships with schools that otherwise could not afford it, helping to close the literacy achievement gap in our communities.
