What a fantastic, life-changing program! Anna Waring is very talented, and she herself has demonstrated "curiosity, persistence and resilience." As a person involved with LEAD and other youth education initiatives, I applaud FCE's success and hope we determine ways to replicate it.

Sounds like a wonderful program! Ms. Waring's vision and execution are exciting. Let's keep this in mind when someone is looking to fund initiatives in EPA.

Congratulations to Anna Waring and the FCE Staff, Board, and volunteers for making this such a successful initiative.

I love EPAMom's input about keeping FCE in mind when "looking to fund initiatives in EPA. Yes!

Anna Waring and FCE are what make me proud to be part of our community. What a gift for these kids. FCE is truly blessed with a phenomenal director (Anna), staff and volunteers.
