Realizing a need to support, grow and retain diverse workforce talent in Milwaukee, MKE Fellows was founded by Milwaukee business leaders and philanthropists. On December 20, the organization awarded a $5,000 grant to Marvin Pratt Elementary School to support education and character development.
MPS Superintendent Darienne Driver accepted a check on behalf of the school from John Daniels of Quarles & Brady at a luncheon honoring all grant recipients. Marvin Pratt, for whom the school is named, was also present at the awards event.
The grant will directly impact African American boys and youth and supports MPS’ Eight Big Ideas to Improve Student Success–Educate the Whole Child initiative.
MPS is grateful for the support of the MKE Fellows!
