Apollo Academics Tutoring

Dunbar High School students Christina Lin, 16, Sarah Lin, 16, and Justin Wong, 15, created Apollo Academics Tutoring, a service to tutor other students.  Rather than collect payment for their time, the three teens decided that they wanted to contribute to their community and directed their clients to donate to their chosen organization in honor of Apollo Academics Tutoring.  Acknowledging that cancer is such a prevalent and serious issue in the world, especially Kentucky, Christina, Sarah, and Justin designated the UK Markey Cancer Foundation as the beneficiary of their generosity and kindness.
