In Memoriam, Agnes Stevens 1935 – 2015

Agnes Stevens Founder of School on Wheels died February 13, 2015

I am so sad to tell you that Agnes Stevens, Founder of School on Wheels, died last night after a long illness.  For those of us who knew and loved Agnes, this is a huge loss.  She was one of those very special human beings who inspired everyone around her.  She had such courage and the vision to see beyond all the road blocks in life. She had an unwavering belief in and passion for School on Wheels.  Agnes always said it takes so little to make a difference in a child’s life.  She certainly did that for the thousands of homeless children whose lives have been touched by School on Wheels.

She was an extraordinary woman who made a lasting difference in our lives and this world.  We all wanted to be a part of making Agnes’ dream of helping homeless children come true.  We will miss her every day.

With deep sorrow, Catherine

Emily Austin Project

A native of South Carolina and Florida, Emily Austin found her way to the City of Angels through her passion for the arts, film and television. She lived her dreams while working in entertainment marketing for studios such as Paramount, Sony and Disney. She was extremely smart, a skilled artist, and most importantly a wonderful friend. She was fascinated with the “possibilities” around her and craved learning new things every day. It was rare to see her without a book in hand, or a Film/TV series playing. She was a huge fan of science fiction and wanted to be on the wait list for the first trip to Mars.

Emily had a great compassion and empathy for people in need, especially homeless families and children. In honor of this glorious girl, “The Emily Austin Project” has been created.

Please donate what you can to support School on Wheels. Any time or monetary contribution is beyond appreciated.

May the Force be with you.
