Our Story

With schools failing, families filing for bankruptcy and foreclosure, and businesses leaving the struggling Hickory Hill community, Derwin Sisnett and Yetta Lewis worked to develop a school that would address both education and community development. In 2008, Power Center Academy opened its doors.
