On Sunday, September 14, 2014,
The Milwaukee Exposure and Explorer Project (MEEP) held their 5th annual luncheon at the Four Points Sheraton. MEEP’s purpose is to provide central city children with opportunities and exposure to different resources that will enable them to develop skills necessary for a successful future. Founder and director Lilly Simmons presented certificates to mentors who have donated time visiting Bryant Elementary School and Carson School of Math and Science.
