MSNBC launched "Advancing The Dream" with Reverend Al Sharpton in July 2013, and since then has received over 6000 moving submissions from community members who are making a difference. Of those submissions, five educators were selected to participate in a special MSNBC web event on September 6.
Mr. Maurice Carter, director of Longwood’s "Call Me MISTER" program was selected to participate.

On September 11, board members of the Ave Maria/Shepherd’s Field schools met at Longwood. After their Board meeting, they met with College of Education and Human Services faculty to explore collaborative opportunities, toured the campus and met with Dr. Ken Perkins, VP and Provost of Academic Affairs, during his Dean’s Advisory meeting.
The Ave Maria Preparatory School in Myakka City, Florida serves students ages 6 to 22 with special learning needs. It was established in 2004 and follows the Florida Common Core Curriculum but "encourages students to use the Disney side of the brain—the right, artistic, intuitive side." They use programs recommended by the International Dyslexia Association and the Learning Disabilities Association of America. Beginning January 2012, Ave Maria has implemented a new research-based program (THRIVE) to reverse the symptoms of autism, ADHD, developmental delay and emotional disorders.
