    Thank you, Octagon, for producing and publishing this video about Breakthrough. Faith did an excellent job, as usual, highlighting this amazing program that gives a hand up to hard-working and deserving students to help them reach their greatest potential.

    Harrison and David — Thank you for doing an excellent job covering the many facets of Breakthrough. We are indeed pleased to be on the SCDS campus. It was another wonderful summer delivering outstanding academic experiences to some deserving and motivated youth. We love all the support we received from SCDS students as well — Héloïse Shelp, Brandy Riziki, Monhini Rye, Larkin Barnard-Bahn, and more! Finally, we at Breakthrough are grateful to the SCDS teachers who kindly share their rooms, to the administration who grant us the spaces, the copiers, the faculty rooms, and on and on, and last, but not least, we appreciate the facilities staff who supported us throughout summer.
