Inspiration Of LTLT
Patricia F. Kennedy
This Organization was founded due to the inspirational memory and Works of Patricia F. Kennedy. Mrs. Kennedy was a woman of substance, who dedicated her life for the betterment of others. Albert Pine once said. “What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal”. Patricia B. Kennedy was an inspirational and courageous woman she lived her life believing that education is the key to success. She was a hero to those that came across her because of her selflessness. Patricia B. Kennedy epitomized what a leader, mother, teacher and a great human being should be; sadly she passed away in 1990. She was a brilliant and ambitious woman who establish herself under the teaching and education of missionaries, she rose to levels that convinced William Tolbert, the nineteenth president of Liberia, to appoint her the first female county commissioner of the Zor-zor district, from 1974-1978. She was instrumental in founding four public schools. She was a patron of many children who received an education under her tutelage, and she cared for the displaced by providing room and board for their safety and rest. This non-profit is in honor of Patricia F. Kennedy.

Sam is a Young man pursuing his BS at Worcester State University. As a child coming from a third world country, Liberia, education was not my strong suit. My reading, writing, and math level was below average and so was everything else that had to do with education. When I started school in the United States, I was places in the 9th grade because of my age. This was very difficult because the education gap was huge. As a result, my grades suffered terribly. I needed help. Therefore, I attended a non-profit organization called M.V.P (Making Vision Possible) which helps students with education gap and prepare them for college. This organization helped me throughout my high school years. They assisted me with homework, tutoring, computer skills and even had extra classes to help me catch up with my peers in school. One of the reasons I joined the organization Learn Today Lead Tomorrow is the passion to give back to my community. I want to give children in Liberia the same opportunity and experience I was given by MVP. The opportunity that helped me advanced in my personal and scholastic life. Acts 20:35 state “In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” LTLT mission has become my vision please help Sam help the forgotten children of this world.
