NBC 26 on Tuesday (Feb. 18) aired a story about the Phuture Phoenix partnership at Green Bay’s Jefferson Elementary School, profiling the program for its “Partners in Education” series.

NBC 26 spoke with a Jefferson teacher, a fourth-grade student and a parent about the importance of the program and the impact it’s making. Full story.
