"Candy Gibbs and CareNet have been the best resources our campus has accessed in addressing the real life needs of middle school students in an honest and direct manner. CareNet works with our school to educate parents and students on topics neither group is equipped to deal with. One of our primary goals for the upcoming school year is better utilize the programs that CareNet provides to our school district."

— Mark Reasor, Principal, Bushland M.S.

'Candy fit perfectly into the realm we needed her, which was speaking to our JH and HS girls about abstinence.  Candy was a great balance of fact, honesty, humor and personal relevance.  Her testimony affected many of the girls and she knew when to throw in a funny comment to be sure they were listening.  We watched the girls’ reactions and they were engaged.  Our surveys back from the girls were they wish she could’ve spoken more.  What better way to tell her how great she did; instead of eating and socializing, they would’ve rather listened to her more.”
