State Representative Barbara Gervin-Hawkins believes that students are able to perform their best when surrounded by a community of support. She believes this because she has experienced it. Through her own community of support growing up, she was able to succeed in school and in life. Gervin-Hawkins shares a valuable piece of wisdom when she says, “Everybody needs somebody.” At Communities In Schools, we believe the same to be true. Everybody needs somebody, and for the students of San Antonio, it has become clear that they not only need CIS-SA, but they also need their community behind them.
