Meryl Mullane is Agency Principal of Mullane Public Relations+Marketing, with over 35 years in Greensboro.
Learning about Communities in Schools of Greater Greensboro, at first I was moved by hearing from students whose lives were changed through CIS, and then I was even more impressed by learning how CIS is hardwired to focus on getting results with efficiency. The marvelous CISGG team works unflaggingly to alleviate each part of the struggle that at-risk students have to deal with, daily challenges that most children never have to face. With CIS, I know 100% of what I give helps students right here, and when it was possible to set up a monthly donation on the CISGG website, it was easy to set it and forget it. Education is the responsibility of every adult, to do all we can to foster opportunities for students to stay in school and graduate, which is the foundation for a stable and productive life. Future success in our community depends on helping young people on the path out of poverty and CISGG is a vital partner on the path to stability and a productive life. As we’ve learned in recent times, more than ever, we’re all in it together.
