Speaker: Dr. Mark Williams
Why is Arete Scholars important to the familes you serve?
Hello, my name is Mark Williams. I'm the superintendent of schools in the Diocese of Houma–Thibodaux in South Louisiana. We believe that parents are the primary educators of their children. Parents deserve a choice in how their children are to be educated. The best results of education are achieved when parents and schools work together to educate the child. We have been working with Arete for many years. Arete is an organization that provides the structure for parental choice and education. We are very, very pleased to work hand in hand with Arete in allowing our parents the opportunity to attend schools that they otherwise may not have had the opportunity to attend. We are very grateful to all who are employed and work in the mission of of Arete. And we look forward to working in the future to help them to assist them as they allow more and more students the ability to attend our schools here in the Diocese of Houma–Thibodaux. Thank you and have a great day.
