I’m very proud to see the work that happened at Waggener High School. I can’t wait to see it in the other schools as it’s taking place, and we grow it into many other schools throughout the district. So, excellent start this year…we’re going to continue on with this work.

I have really enjoyed the stories that you all present at Metro Council. Let me tell you, they make a difference. I am just delighted that when we talk about community needs in this city, affordable housing is one of the two or three things that get listed. That wasn’t true a few years ago, and it’s because of what you have done that has made it true.

- Metro Councilman Bill Hollander

You are needed... We need you to continue to come out and continue to put pressure on us, and our colleagues, to force the continuation of this discussion.

In our experience, what sets CLOUT apart is their diligence in understanding the causes of problems and their thorough research into the effectiveness of the solutions they propose… As a business leader, my interest lies in their work to increase academic achievement and youth mentoring to improve the employability of the young people in our community.

I want to thank you for your courage, and your compassion, and your dedication. We’ve talked about a Living Room for five or six years at Centerstone. It hadn’t happened until CLOUT stepped up and provided the kind of advocacy that only you can give.
