What Our Pillars Say

The many Diamonds of YEIA are supported by our strong Pillars. The Pillars of YEIA are comprised of prominent members of the community.

"In a world where everyone seems to ignore the needs of the student, YEIA magically wraps their arms around education through the community in a cocoon that supports the children."

Vivian H. Terry
Administrator / Educator / Businesswoman

"One of the best parts of being a Pillar is being a part of trustworthy relationship with the community.   As a Pillar, we are supporters, advocates and allies to education at its best."

Tijuana M. Lewis
Guidance Counselor

"My advice to other Pillars is to forget everything that you have learned prior to YEIA, have fun, learn from the youth, enjoy the experience and repeat indefinitely."

Calvin Leaks
Administrator / Educator
