Throughout the month of February we are bringing in leaders, influencers, entrepreneurs, writers, educators, business people, artists, media personalities, chefs, sports personalities, and dreamers to talk to and inspire our scholars at PS7 and Sac High. 

On February 8, Kevin Powers spoke to Sac High scholars about how he overcame multiple challenges including sports-related injuries and mental health struggles and is now thriving as a barber and author of the book “Not Today Fear!” You can read more about how Kevin inspired our scholars at Capital Public Radio and the Sacramento Observer.
