ABOUT SHARED BLESSINGS:
Shared Blessings, Incorporated, Learning Through The Arts is the vision of Jacqueline Thomas and India Graves. In the State of Georgia, high school drop outs are at an all-time high. Middle schools are not well attended, and consequently, illiteracy is growing by leaps and bounds and the percentage of Georgia graduates is ranked among the worst in the country. There had to be a way to get these kids interested in education; to stimulate interest in Middle and High School students to want to learn and ultimately graduate from school. By using their music industry connections, India and Jacqueline bring speakers before the students to get them excited about aspects of the music industry they were unaware of.
