Say Yes to Family Sucess
Lisa Bond has made her career in schools, but her first and favorite job is mom to Wendell and Atira. When they were in Guilford County Schools, she and her husband, a truck driver, encouraged them to work hard, and surround themselves with positive people. “We were concerned about how we were going to get these kids to college.” In 2015, when her son was a senior, they started to see the way. “Say Yes Guilford helped my son, covering tuition that scholarships didn’t cover. That was a tremendous help, and for my daughter too.”
