Here is an excerpt:
“Marilyn Barnes, (a recent Knox Alumnae and departmental prize winner) conducted a study on the importance of adult mentoring relationships for “at-risk” middle-school students. Drawing on theories of social capital, Barnes found that adult mentorship relationships and youth-focused programming provided the middle-schoolers in her study both academic and personal support.”
