About: To engage, inform, and mobilize the business community and community-at-large in collaboration with the Wake County Public School System (WCPSS) providing every student with excellent educational opportunities, highly effective teachers, and strong leaders. Above all, we support teachers so they can achieve the dreams they have for their students.
