Latrelle McAllister:
One of the things that we were a part of was the Boston exchange. We had an exchange program where, I think - I can't remember exactly - perhaps there were three to five students from Boston that came to school at West Charlotte for a period, I think, of a week. And, then some students from our campus went to school there. Because Boston had, I guess, was considered then maybe a benchmark for success in terms of integrating school systems. So we were able to get the opportunity to share with them their successes and, hopefully, learn from those mistakes that they made, as well.
