Communities In Schools of Mid-America, an affiliate of the nation’s largest organization dedicated to helping students succeed in school and achieve in life, celebrates its 25th anniversary in September 2020.

CIS of Mid-America President & CEO, Malissa Martin said, “It has been an absolute honor to watch this agency grow and evolve to meet the needs of our young people and their families. This would not have been possible without the support we receive from our volunteers, funders, community partners, and schools. On behalf of all of CIS of Mid-America and the more than 300,000 students we have helped throughout our 25 years, we thank you for your continued support of our work.”

To celebrate, CIS of Mid-America kicks off its 25th Anniversary Campaign with the release of an updated logo and a celebratory message from the President & CEO, which can be viewed on the non-profit’s website. Over the next 12 months and in recognition of its 25 years, the agency plans to host virtual events and raise funds to support its mission. More information can be found at
