Mentor Moment: Meet Pirate Pal Gracie Quave

By Sally Andrews 

Gracie Quave chose to be a Pirate Pal, mentoring a fourth grader at Pine Forest Elementary, because she hopes to help a child succeed. She says, “I believe we have a responsibility to give back, and the best way to do that is by volunteering.” She goes on to say that, “This program only asks for thirty minutes a week.
