New member quotes

Lourdes Baez“As a child of immigrants, I am a fervent believer that one of the best qualities of this country is the ability of any individual through determination and perseverance to go as far as their ambition and generally, this is accomplished through education and service—something we believe in at Baptist Health as well. KCTCS is a gateway to that American Dream, and it would be an honor to contribute in even a small way to those efforts.”
