Aareon Monroe has been part of Monarchs programs for seven years and part of our community since birth. His family no longer lives nearby but he and his siblings take SEPTA to and from South Philadelphia every day to attend E.M. Stanton Elementary. This fall, Aareon and his mom worked with Melanie Pontz while applying to high schools. Melanie is an education consultant and Marian Anderson neighbor who is supporting our middle school families as they prepare for high school. Get to know Aareon in this month's "Meet a Monarch."
