About this title


"Education is the great equalizer," George Thomas' mother would tell him while he was growing up in a family of sharecroppers in segregated South Carolina during the 1930s and '40s. He took this message to heart. After becoming the first person in his family to graduate from college, he achieved a successful and fulfilling career as a teacher, school principal, associate superintendent, and college president. However, he was not done. In 1986, he embraced a new mission: to launch a Saturday School program to boost the academic achievements and lift the spirits of needy students in Montgomery County, Maryland. In this book, Dr. Thomas shares his inspiring personal story and provides a vivid account of how he and countless allies created, grew, and sustained this pioneer program that's still going strong today-and serves as a model for anyone dedicated to improving the lives of young people all over our country.
