Agape is excited to bring one of the country’s preeminent education reformers to Memphis! Geoffrey Canada, President and CEO of Harlem Children’s Zone (HCZ) will join us from New York, for an evening of information and celebration. Canada will discuss education in our country and how HCZ has changed education and the future for area children. HCZ’s charter school network prides itself on turning around the lives of disadvantaged students, and boasts that 95% of its high school seniors are accepted into college! Canada was recently recognized by Fortune Magazine as #12 of the World’s 50 Greatest Leaders. See the cover here.
10-time Grammy award winning Gospel Singer CeCe Winans will follow Mr. Canada for a concert of gospel worship. Ms. Winans will bless us all with a concert to celebrate HeartLight 2014. Don’t miss this amazing event and an evening of fellowship to support Agape Child & Family Services and our mission to serve the fatherless, homeless children and families, and most under-resourced communities in the Mid-South.
