What Others Have to Say
“Mike and I got to know Margo at the United Club from our travels between Cleveland and Houston. It was like watching the metamorphosis of a butterfly….before the GED to her accomplishment of it. You don’t need me to tell you how she came out of that cocoon and what she’s done since ̶ she really used those wings to soar. Margo is the resulting flower of the seeds that Seeds of Literary has planted, and I can already see how she’s sewing her seeds for the next season’s garden. Nothing is more important than education and Mike and I are proud to say we know Margo and support Seeds of Literacy.”
