#111 Cynthia Fitzgerald

For Cynthia Fitzgerald, an accomplished attorney, honored graduate from MTSU and Vanderbilt, wife and mother, the struggles inner city youth have in achieving the goal of becoming a high school graduate and attending college is something she knows first hand.  It was her story as a young teen living in public housing in Nashville and she literally walked her way out of that system determined to help her family reach a new way of life by pursuing a college education.  Now, she and her husband Coach Maurice Fitzgerald, Sr. have dedicated their lives to helping inner city / at risk youth do the same with In Full Motion, a non-profit organization they founded that provides academic tutoring, ACT prep / test and much more.  Cynthia shares her personal story as well as her work with In Full Motion on One on One with Becky Magura.
