Three Mill Creek students have taken a project that they did in Mrs. Davenport's Marketing and Entrepreneurship class and have turned it into a reality!
Samantha Rahinsky, Maddie Deal and Madison Watson have formed Books With a Purpose. A non-profit that will help provide school supplies to students in Africa has teamed up with Books For Africa and Jump Start Atlanta. Mrs. Davenport, Samantha, Maddie and Madison all meet with Fotemah Mba founder of Jump Start Atlanta and PJ Lynch board member for Book for Africa on Saturday to see how the three organizations can all help each other.
Follow the girls progress on any of their social media platforms below. You will start seeing more promotion of their non-profit as we get closer to the end of the school year not only at Mill Creek but many other Gwinnett County high schools. Great job ladies in epitomizing Mill Creeks vision of SOAR!
