Why does this matter to a local business owner?
The children in our community are our human capital and greatest resource. We have the ability to cultivate hard working, successful kids that will pay this community back with their time and talents if they see that we value them. We can't just talk the talk, we have to walk the walk and put our money and time into creating a positive learning environment that includes community business stakeholders.
The business community of Norfolk has lots of talent and vision for a successful Norfolk. That vision has a place in the school system. The children stand to benefit immensely from the resources and input that our local businesses have to offer.
