Meet The Colleagues
How Carmetrus Is Impacting Communities
At a city-wide youth summit on race, Sha Lu'Juan (15) facilitated a group on civic engagement, while Tyree (12) led a discussion on disproportionate discipline in the public school system. "You might think they were KF Colleagues," says their proud mother, Carmetrus Parker (KC '09). "They've been thriving, and have demonstrated a spirit of service."
As a concerned mother, Carmetrus has spent the last two years building partnerships to address the achievement gap in Tacoma Public Schools, which she presented at the Race & Pedagogy National Conference at the UW. She represents Trinity Presbyterian on the planning committee for race relations in Tacoma. Last May, Carmetrus co-facilitated the Krista Foundation's Intercultural Development workshop in Spokane. She brought Tyree and Sha along to spend time with Krista Colleagues and be encouraged along their own journeys of service and leadership.
Carmetrus's Service BioI serve at a local pre-kindergarten through 8th grade public Montessori school. I am the coordinator of an afterschool, literacy based program hosted by Trinity Presbyterian Church. I also assist with reading groups, planning community events, and coordinating volunteers. I participate in school-wide and community training events specifically surrounding the Achievement Gap in public schools.
