Wanda Joyce Robinson Foundation
Kentucky’s state incarceration rate is more than double the national average. Children of incarcerated parents are more likely to experience physical and emotional abuse, addiction, poverty, and drop out of school. The Wanda Joyce Robinson Foundation is the vision of a formerly incarcerated father to create a nonprofit to support and mentor the children of the incarcerated in Kentucky. Based in Frankfort, the foundation serves families and schools in eight Kentucky counties; training educators in four states and advising youth services abroad.
Come learn more about this amazing organization during the general session, July 28.

This moving presentation hits home for many educators as they watch unsung heroes from their own districts be celebrated for exceptional devotion to kids. Learn how bus drivers, custodians, volunteers, and others can contribute daily to positive and healthy places for kids to learn and grow. The presentation of the Fred Award finalists continues to be a favorite for attendees.
