"I recently had the pleasure of being at a PTA meeting in December which chose to inform us of STEM and STEAM programs in my community. I was very impressed with Ms Kyshia Lawrie's presentation. It was very informative and enlightening at best. I am very happy I was in this meeting. Her presentation about the programs that are available along with her vibrant personality really made a lasting impression on my two daughters who are currently seniors of 2016. The presentation inspired them to seek after other alternatives motivating them to look into these specific programs for College. So I write to celebrate her today great job Ms Kysha Lawrie”.
