The youth served by Epworth Children and Family Services were tired of sitting in educational limbo each time they had to transfer high schools. For those in foster care, moves from one home and school district to another are not uncommon, but they meant waiting several weeks—and falling farther behind in classwork—while records were transferred. Those students decided to fight for a change, and with the help of Missouri State Representatives (and Epworth board members) Rick Stream and Jeanne Kirkton, Gov. Jay Nixon signed House Bill 1577 into law, expediting the transfer of high school records for foster care children. The moment, several years in the making, took place at Epworth, and its importance did not go unnoticed by CEO Kevin Drollinger. “One of the things we can do is empower youth and show them that they do have control of their environment and can have brighter futures. If they work within the system the right way and follow the path, they can move mountains.”
