“I would love to live in a community that has equity and equality for all. This is important to me because you don’t know what you don’t know until someone presents it to you. There are a lot of opportunities out there that many may not be aware of, and it’s important for everyone to know what is available. If everyone is informed, then everyone is on a fair playing ground.” - LaRhonda Fulcher, Adul t Educat ion Director for UAPTC
