La Prensa Latina: How Green Dot Is Helping Transform Public Education In Tennessee


Cecilia Walker, Director of Development at Green Dot Public Schools Tennessee speaks with La Prensa Latina Media about closing the digital divide and supporting Memphis students pave a path to success.

Yamile: What are your goals at Green Dot?

Cecilia: As we have seen, COVID-19 will continue to impact in-person schooling and programs. While we are respecting all guidelines implemented by the CDC, we will not allow this disruption to put our students’ futures on hold. Supporting our students through quality online curriculums and vibrant arts programs will keep pathways to college on track, while also maintaining the community connectivity that is so vital. Our goals remain the same: to help transform public education so all students graduate prepared for college, to build strong communities and to support each student on a path of success
