"BEST is the best (pun intended) thing that could have ever happened to me when I graduated high school in 2001."
"BEST is a family who will support you in any way possible to help you accomplish your dreams."
"I never would have finished my education if it weren’t for BEST. I wouldn’t have been able to make an impact on my community in the way that I am if it weren’t for them."
"The mentorship program, the kindhearted members of the board, and the man that runs the show (Billy Staples) were all HUGE impacts in turning my college slump into my college success."
"Its actually the intangible things that I have come to value the most; things like friendship, networking, making connections, family, and remembering to pay it forward."
"As a BEST graduate, 'pay it forward' are three words that immediately come to mind."
"Thanks to them and my amazing mentor, I am further continuing my education at the University of Pittsburgh for my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree."
