The "Step Ahead Scholars" program has provided $300,000 in scholarships to  young women in Memphis. This past spring, we invited renowned Memphis artist Jimpsie Ayres to attend the reception for 2016/2017 recipients. 


Jimpsie Ayres created this painting for A Step Ahead Foundation for this year's holiday card and print edition. In the making of this painting, she celebrates our connections and, specifically, the power of love and community to change the world.
