‘Promise Neighborhood’ shared at Chamber luncheon

Kelli Moore, Knox Promise Neighborhood Project Director, was the main speaker at the April 24 Chamber meeting. Moore, along with a handful of associates, shared the important work and outreach her organization is providing in Knox County through Partners for Education at Berea College. In total, they service three school districts, 20 schools and 10,347 kids and hire nearly 100 full and part-time employees to work in the county. Promise Neighborhood predominately focuses on early learning and development, academic services, safety and health, family engagement and arts and the humanities, following students from cradle to career to ensure successful lives.
