Addressing inequities in access to quality education, resources and support is essential for ensuring that all students have an equal chance to succeed.”

Learning from a mentor
“Price Gardner. Price has provided guidance for numerous professional and personal endeavors. One of the biggest lessons I have learned from Price, from his direct teachings and through my observations of him, is the importance of strategic thinking and problem-solving. Regardless of the current matter at hand, Price has instilled in me that a methodical approach to solving problems using critical thinking and analysis of possible implications of every decision/outcome most often provides for the best results.”
