I was involved in TIP as a student in an underfunded rural district. It made a huge difference in my life. I went on to earn a Ph.D. at Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar, in no small part because TIP gave a few people the idea that it would be worthwhile to invest in me. It was.

I went there as a child. It has been almost two decades, but it still stands out as one of the best experiences of my youth.
