Why are you ProudlyPENCIL: “I am ProudlyPENCIL because PENCIL has a heart for kids. Their sole purpose is to make resources available for our students in our city to make education equitable for everybody. A lot of people talk the talk, but a lot of people don’t walk the walk. PENCIL does a good job of doing both, quite honestly.” – Myra Taylor, Executive Principal
