Montgomery County Communities In Schools executive director Lynn Epps spoke to the Mount Gilead Lions Club last night (Jun. 2).
It was the club’s regular monthly meeting, and Epps updated members on the work Communities In Schools does with students in the county.
The organization is known for its “Backpack Pals” program, which helps provide supplemental food, and for its history of mentoring students, particularly at the elementary and middle school levels. Communities In Schools has also presented a series of motivational speakers, college field trips and student safety events at schools across Montgomery County.
