"Doug Shirley's work with at risk students is innovative and straightforward. There is a "common sense" pragmatism that he ties to unabashed idealism with the thought that "you CAN make a difference in the lives of young people." Doug Shirley's dedication to these core principles throughout his career drives him to want to see all students be successful in their whole life. This comes with the understanding that meaningful career choices are a tremendous aid to lifetime success."
