MCFAPA Board President featured on “Sitting Courtside”

Our Board President, Brandon Bishop, was recently featured on the 1st episode of “Sitting Courtside” with Courtney Price-Dukes this week. Courtney is a former foster youth that has decided to use her past to help change the future.

Courtney is an extraordinary young lady that recently won Miss Sedgwick County in Kansas and is competing for Miss Kansas 2022 on the platform of Aging Out to Aging Forward – Adopting better practices to Foster the Youth! If you haven’t seen her TEDx talk on The Reality of Foster Care, you can do that here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hIHV9ou4DCg&t=17s. That is exactly how Brandon heard of her before reaching out and connecting. 🙂 Also, please go give our friend a follow here and join her on her journey to Miss Kansas 2022!
