Dear Tyler,

Thank you so much for being the best Team Leader that an AmeriCorps member could ask for. Everyday you came to service with a bright attitude and a voluminous smile! Even on your bad days, you held strong to optimism and positivity. Thank you for always making our students feel as though they were in a safe space to express themselves and share ideas. You are truly one of the most genuine people that I’ve ever met in my entire life! I am so proud of you for being so strong and always working to better yourself. I wish you the best on all of your LACY (Leadership After City Year) plans! I know you’ll be the best at anything you put your mind to. Remember to take care of yourself and to always believe in who you are. You are a true inspiration and the best City Year Team Leader a team could ever ask for! 

The AmeriCorps member who loves you the most,


Stephonie Rodgers proudly served as a Second Year AmeriCorps member at Baton Rouge College Prep. This fall she will be attending graduate school.
