Excellent job, and remember to whom much is given much is required. Setting the tone and raising the bar high. Your efforts and dedication have redefined excellence. Continue leading by example and keep up the great work.

I support the Blonka Movement and her efforts to restore the community and uplift the youth. She truly cares and is leading by example as a productive citizen

Mr. Lester Wilson

The Blonka Movement is impressive to me because the focus is on people or groups in the community that do positive things. In my case, I like the awareness the Blonka Movement shared on me, my students, and my school, Kipp Renaissance. Too often, we see and hear about negative things that are happening in our communities. It is refreshing to see positive stories about people, organizations, etc. Keep up the good work. Please continue to show the work of dedicated teachers/students. Sincerely, Lester Wilson, Band Director at KIPP Renaissance High School

Blonka and her team have been helping us out providing me and my husband with food and clothes. I love what her organization represents. 

There's nothing she wouldn't do to help someone in need. My life will never be the same, many people walked past me as I was sleeping on the ground time and time again under the Claiborne bridge. Many times I was robbed and couldn't sleep, my clothes and food were stolen. Blonka is a hero and her team is the blessing that answered my PRAYERS. God Bless and thank you for everything you have done to help us.

Thank you so much for your recognition of the school, the band, and its members. I like the approach you are taking to draw the community's attention to music programs and their importance. Your recognition serves to motivate these students to continue putting their best efforts forth.
