Helen Wells was a special lady. Through her life, her business and her loving way with people, she inspired everyone she touched to live deeply, to be the best they could be. Helen established the Helen Wells Agency in 1980, which has become one of the leading talent agencies in the Midwest. She was an entrepreneur with high expectations for herself and her team, and those that had the honor of working with her were inspired to begin expecting better of themselves. And then to deliver.
DREAM Alive counts it as our privilege that Helen loved us, our work, our mission. She helped build the foundation along with our founders Tarik and Maya Glenn, giving our scholars opportunities to grow in character and skill. She shouldered the vision with us. We have a treasured legacy because Helen loaned us her team and her skills to document and produce beautiful videos and photography of our many events.
It is with the greatest pleasure that we are able to dedicate to Helen Wells a vital part of our program. The Helen Wells Expectations Program will be the launching point for our Scholars in their final two years with us. In 11th and 12th grades our Scholars are learning to expect… to expect more from themselves, to expect results, to expect that they can and will make a difference, and to expect to apply all that they’ve learned with DREAM Alive in our six years together to create a life of impact. And they understand that we simply expect this of them because they are worth it.
Helen would have it no other way!
