For thousands of kids in the Ozarks, education is an afterthought to survival. Skip two meals. Walk to school without a coat. And now, solve for x. It’s hard enough remembering the preamble on a full stomach. When hunger and hygiene rob a child of dignity, learning isn’t a priority.

Great turnout for #PantherRunCTL on a beautiful morning. Thank you runners! https://t.co/9qQ6s1pakm
