She says, “I’ve been fortunate to work with students from lower income families at an all-girls school dedicated to their success in and out of the classroom.” From her time at SBS, Coffee is most thankful for the spiritual and academic guidance, particularly from teachers such as Donna Sims, Janis Simonton and Jeannene Simonton.
Katherine’s advice to current SBS students: “Enjoy your time at SBS, there’s no other place like it!”
