Though we learned of Diane Latiker's work years ago, I've just recently learned that she was a 2011 CNN Hero.  Great to see her work get such attention!

Helping Students and Schools in Need

Have received an endorsement from a wonderful new NFP organization called Schools Count Corp., led by Dick Flesher, former Hinsdale South High School Coach and Teacher.

Please take time to learn about all of the various initiatives that this organization has tackled in recent years.


Mr. Flesher will be working with our Kids4Good club to help raise funds for our Hope4Haiti project to rebuild our adopted school in Darbonne, Haiti.
