“They say it takes a village to raise a child,” said Jamie Casler, director of the J.V. Morsch Center for Social Justice. “I think it takes the Trevecca community to raise a nonprofit.”
Casler was referring to Trevecca’s role in helping to launch Stronger Than My Father, a nonprofit aimed at reaching out to at-risk youth. How the nonprofit came to be is a story filled with examples of community, weaving together a student’s dream, professors’ guidance, the Center for Social justice, alumni, employees, a business luncheon and a local church.
