• Milwaukee Exposure & Explorer Project celebrates 7th Annual Luncheon

    September 15, 2016


    On Sunday, September 11, 2016, The Milwaukee Exposure and
    Explorer Project (MEEP) hosted its 7th Annual Luncheon.
    MEEP was founded in the summer of 2009 by former Milwaukee
    Public School teachers Lilly Simmons, Erma Smith, and Betty
    Rodgers. The founders recognized the need for urban children to
    be exposed to the possibilities and opportunities of a variety of
    careers. They also saw the need for additional support and solicited
    involvement from individuals who had an interest in their vision.
    Therefore, the event celebrates the founding of MEEP; and
    also serves to thank those that have supported the organization.
    Pictured at the event are MEEP mentors and speakers including
