We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to the many advisors who have assisted us with developing the Latin and Greek Roots Challenge and have been so generous with their time, labor, and valued counsel.  You have all made an indelible mark on this project and have shared our commitment to providing our children, and all children, with the very best education we possibly can!


With heartfelt gratitude,
Maureen and John Riley.
