"We want to send our sincere thanks to the Foundation for supporting our Smart Start University program at Herff Elementary.  We are bringing students, parents and teachers together to learn, build relationships and change lives.  Thank you for believing in us as educators and for providing our young learners with this educational stepping stone. "  - Claudine Robinson and our Smart Start Teachers at Herff
