The Annual Fund Campaign supports professional development, such as English teacher Michele Surat's participation in the National Council of Teachers of English Conference in Boston this past November. Surat attended a wide range of seminars and met Ishmael Beah, the author of A Long Way Gone, which is part of the Maggie Walker English curriculum.
