When it was time to start kindergarten, I went to the public school and talked to them about Brandon.

The Reform Alliance is proud to manage the Succeed Scholarship at no cost to the State of Arkansas. Even small expenses like the cost of mailing checks to schools are paid for by a private foundation grant.
