Why do you work at CICS?: Riley believes education is the great equalizer in our world. It helps to level the playing field for someone who was born with everything to someone who was not. It's effects on people transcends far past the 12th grade where it ends. In an ideal world there would be a strong public school educational option for everyone, but that is not the case. CICS helps to bridge that gap in quality, giving students choice, for one of the most important things in their young lives.
