Lights On AfterschoolIf you look at the list of supporters, you will see National PTA and the local Montgomery County Commission for Women. Overall, MoCo seems to be very quiet on this issue - are we taking the lead from our Superintendent Dr. Jerry Weast who is cutting programs that impact kids? Will our County Executive Ike Leggett become the champion of afterschool programs or does his advocacy end with the award?
