The Making of CIS of Atlanta Documentary “Beating the Odds”

The Making of CIS of Atlanta Documentary “Beating the Odds”

We are humbled and honored that our documentary, “Beating the Odds” has received national attention from the independent film festival community. As we prepare to participate in the 10th Annual Charlotte Black Film Festival in April, we wanted to give you a behind-the-scenes look at the inspiration for this film. Beating the Odds highlights the trials our students face and the life-changing mission of CIS of Atlanta. The compelling story highlights the students we serve, along with our CEO, Frank Brown’s story about overcoming challenges to become the leader he is today. Special thanks to our visionary filmmakers, Jessica & Jason Young who helped us tell our story in such a compelling way, Frank Brown for sharing his personal story and our CIS of Atlanta students for participating in this important effort.

CIS of Atlanta Celebrates 2020 Grads!

CIS of Atlanta Celebrates Class of 2020!

CIS of Atlanta Celebrates Class of 2020! Our team had a great time creating a fun, surprise trunk giveaway to college-bound high school graduates. We had a total of 11 future lawyers, television anchors, veterinarians, engineers, and educators matriculating to colleges as near as West Georgia and Kennesaw State, and as far as Virginia State University. Each student received a trunk full of dorm room and school supplies to prepare for their journey. The emotion and excitement displayed today was a testament to how we help our students get to the finish line. We salute you class of 2020 and we are thankful for our dedicated team of mentors.
