Favorite Aspect of CFT
"The chance to make a greater impact for students and families in the state of Texas."
"We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility. It's easy to say, ‘It's not my child, not my community, not my world, not my problem.' Then there are those who see the need and respond. I consider those people my heroes."
— Mr. Rogers
