This month on The SPARK our theme is “A Bright Future.” We’ll learn more about The College Initiative, a nonprofit providing high school students with the tools and mentorship to successfully apply to and succeed in college; TN Association of Blind Athletes, an organization providing sports and recreational activities for blind or visually impaired men, women, and children in our community; and Solar Tech Glass Tinting and Graphics, a company helping homeowners, businesses, and nonprofits stay cool, save money and make a statement with window films and graphics. We’ll also share a special moment from our SPARK Awards 2016.

One of the amazing things about living, working and raising a family here in the Mid-South is that there are countless organizations and people who are working hard each day, rolling up their sleeves to help others and to make a difference, in order for all of us to have a bright future. Nonprofits like The College Initiative are helping students who often lack the guidance and support they need to prepare for college, apply to the best-fit schools, apply for financial aid, enroll and persist in their studies and ultimately graduate. They are making a college education a priority and making it accessible; and changing lives and future generations. The Tennessee Association of Blind Athletes is not only providing sport and recreational opportunities for people with blindness, they’re also providing purpose, joy, and fellowship to those who many times feel isolated – and inspiring all of us in the process. Companies, like Solar Tech are then using their expertise and resources for good, to give back, help those in need, and help our city grow.
