“GO had all the materials, they had all the sign-in, they had everything. When we got there, I was getting a sign in sheet like we usually get… Everything was done… [My parents] always said when a person does things for you, you give back to them and appreciate what they have done… So on behalf of the Oakland NAACP Education Committee, I want to thank GO.”
