SAAB contract narrowly survives school board vote

Springfield, MO—A contract to expand the Student African American Brotherhood within Springfield Public Schools was narrowly approved at the August meeting in a 4-3 board vote. A four-person board majority — Denise Fredrick, Danielle Kincaid, Shurita Thomas-Tate, and Scott Crise — voted in support of spending $64,605 in the coming year to offer the mentoring program in middle schools.
The SAAB program, which relocated its national headquarters to Springfield in the summer 2020, operates chapters in Springfield high schools and local colleges.
