National Public Radio’s The Moth featured Catherine’s story

You need to listen to Catherine’s story delivered in Pittsburgh at the South Side Rex Theater a while ago. It played on the podcast and the national radio show.

Future stories from her are expected. Some have already been recorded at other local events. In 2015 she was the “Grand Champion” at the annual event in Pittsburgh were all the prior story winners get to tell a story. This year’s Grand Slam is in a few months and she’ll be there again.

Good news arrived concerning the Sprout Fund Grant for Digital Badges

Yes. We seem to be able to get the technology for Summer Dreamers as a result of the efforts with the Digital Badges and the Sprout Fund.

I need to clear up two questions, it seems. That’s okay as I asked to meet with them a couple of weeks ago anyway.
