Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable…Every step toward the goal […] requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals“.
Check out the dedicated crew we had at SCF for the month of November:
