Opportune In The Community: Tulsa's Street School Opens New Building
Amy Stutzman, Managing Director in Opportune's Complex Financial Reporting practice, currently serves as Chairman of the Board for Street School Inc., an alternative high school for Tulsa’s (Oklahoma) at-risk youth. Last week, the school achieved a strategic goal of expansion by opening their second location. The new location will ultimately serve 80 additional students, a 60% increase over current program capacity.
What do you like best about being on the board of Street School?
Stutzman: Students make a personal choice to attend Street School and they overcome challenges that I can't even begin to imagine to be here every day because of Street School's reputation for transforming lives. Their stories of courage and perseverance inspire me every day.
What's next for Street School?
Stutzman: Expansion and replication of the Street School model will continue to be a part of our strategic plan, as will expanding our 45-year history of successful partnership with Tulsa Public Schools.
