“The Anne Perry was a wonderful program to be able to partake in. It gave me real-life experience that will carry over in future careers and endeavors. My mentor was kind, understanding and enjoyed being able to teach me what he knew so I would be able to succeed while I was in the program. I am so thankful that I was able to take part in this program and the experience it gave me will follow me for the rest of my life.”  – Recipient, Charles Magness
