Our Leadership Team


  • “Competitions usually cost us between $200 and $500 per event. We’re very grateful to Eric and his organization because we know we have kids every year who don’t have the funds to participate. This grant will help them to be able to compete all season.”

    Rob Ritter
    Walled Lake Northern High School Teacher
  • “I am so grateful for this grant because I would not be able to go to the model United Nations conference because of the cost. I am excited to represent another country and meet students from around the state.”
