Only such efforts will ensure that all Southern Arizona children have the opportunity to reach their full potential. Co-chairs are Steve Lynn, Donald Pitt and Colleen Niccum.
SALC’s major emphasis in K-12 education is support for Tucson Values Teachers, a program to attract, retain and support the very best teachers for Tucson’s children. More information is available at www.tucsonvaluesteachers.org.
