Story from:

Beth Karlin, Multnomah County

Twenty years ago, I worked for Wieden & Kennedy. Dan Wieden encouraged all of us to volunteer for SMART and made it easy for us to do so. He gave us an hour every week to read with our SMART students and invited them into the agency for celebrations. He eventually started a camp for our students. Now, 20 years later I am in my 7th year as an elementary school teacher. Did SMART change my life? YOU BET!!!!
