Guest Book Highlights

July 30, 2015 "Mrs. Collins influenced me deeply when I saw "The Marva Collins Story" at 11 years old. I knew then that I wanted to teach and do what she did for children, families, and the community. Years later, I had the honor of meeting Mrs. Collins in a workshop training, and was so impacted that I actually cried when it was over. She changed my teaching content. I read her books repeatedly. I worked in public schools for 23 years striving to use education to change lives and to impact the school system. I am now seeking to start an educational program with Mrs. Collins as my inspiration. May God's grace walk with the Collins family, and may her soul rest in peace. A+,well done!" - Carol Williams (Oakland, CA)
