Testimonial – Felicia Hopkins

During High School at a point when there were not many activities for black girls, my friends and I decided to create an activity of own (Step Team) where the saying “North Side” started.
Mrs. Boddie helped us find a practice space, drove us to and from practice, and eventually helped us become a well anticipated group who performed at basketball half times at Bloomington North through out our remaining high school years.
Cry of the Children/Mrs. Boddie was a instrumental part of me adolescence. These were lessons that I’ve carried over into adulthood and apply to my life daily.
Who knows where I would be or what I could have become with Cry of the Children, Inc. I am forever grateful for Mrs. Boddie’s unconditional love, wisdom, and unwillingness to give up on her children.
