Kohler went on to say, "From dedicated educators to our corporate and community partners who are collaborating behind the scenes, our partnerships have been the constant force in helping SHARP grow beyond what we could have ever imagined. With their steadfast support, we continue to follow our mission of providing every child in our community the same educational opportunities, no matter their circumstances."
