Here's Assistant Principal Mrs. McKee on why CSK is such a special place, “I wish you could be here with us every day to see … every girl has a dream with her name on it here…” The school community is located in a food desert which means they are at least 5 Miles away from the nearest grocery store. The garden is to supply those in the community. Some of the foods grown in the garden are greens, tomatoes, blueberries, strawberries and other fruits and vegetables. Another Student Leader, Ava, shared that every third Wednesday they have a food bank and give full meals to people in the community.

Congratulations to The Coretta Scott King Young Women's Leadership Academy in Atlanta for being finalists in this year's $15,000 give back give away with Star 94 and Delta Community Credit Union.
