Why are you interested in the Millcreek Promise Health Committee Mission?

 "Because I believe that education plays a major role in the growth and progress of a society. It is one of the key components that can make or break a culture’s advancement. If citizens of a society are educated, they can provide significant contributions in the fields of arts, literature, science, technology, and others, and help establish a well-rounded and stimulating community. I care most about 1) afterschool programming; 2) community identity and; 2) critical thinking and problem solving skills."
