Mike is the co-founder of the KIPP (Knowledge is Power Program) Foundation and the Superintendent of KIPP Houston, which includes 125 public charter school in 20 states. To date, more than 90% of the KIPPsters have graduated high school, and more than 80% have gone on to college. KIPP, like Gallery Furniture, started in Houston, Texas. I'm so proud to be a multi-decade friend of Mike's, and a supporter of the KIPP Foundation. Keep up the great work Mike, and all KIPPsters out there! As always, thank you for your continue support!
