Urban Beats Spotlight
This month's Urban Beats spotlight goes to our Youth Support Partner, Kelsey Daniels. Kelsey was recently accepted to SDSU to receive her Masters in Social Work. Although we are sad to see her go, we are so proud to see her take this next step in her professional career. Her presence at Urban Beats is felt by all, as will her absence. She is a most coveted member of our family and we cherish her greatly. We wish her nothing but the best, she will always be apart of Urban Beats, now and forever.
