INSPIRATION STATION: Braulio Olvera (middle) — who did not speak any English when he started 2nd grade at Franklin Elementary School in 2009 — has a 3.7 in all honors classes at Santa Barbara Junior High School and plans to apply for Dos Pueblos’s Engineering Academy. His success can be attributed in part to his mother Maria’s (right) support. She received considerable advice and guidance from Franklin Principal Casie Killgore (left). Families like this one inspired Killgore to open a service center so more parents could receive advice and support on a daily basis.
