In nominating Amber, her mentor Rachel Barnett said, “Amber has been a dependable worker since her first day here at ALSAC. She has been praised for her quality of work and the timeliness in which she has been able to complete it. She has been a pleasure to have in the office, open to any project that is presented. She has impressed me with her poise and maturity, and I can only look forward to what the future months will bring.”
Memphis Catholic High School is the home of the Education That Works program, which enables financially-disadvantaged students to receive a private, college preparatory education by working five days per month for corporate sponsors to earn approximately two-thirds of their tuition.
