{Chris Tanner Jr.,"then, & now"with his father, Chris Tanner Sr.}

In 2002, nine-year-old Chris Tanner Jr. bounced into Milk and Honey's after-school program with his megawatt smile and magnetic personality. Over the next eleven years he became friend and mentor to countless children - all facing similar life challenges. Chris was raised by his father who worked several jobs to provide for his three children and who modeled loving leadership, self-reliance, and dependability. When Chris grew into his teens, he displayed those same qualities among his peers and was a positive role model for the younger children at Milk and Honey and the surrounding Attucks Court community. The Tanners recognized the value of the Milk and Honey programs and were faithful in their attendance.

When Chris graduated from Washington High School this year, he requested that all the Milk and Honey children come to witness his graduation ceremony. He wanted them to see that such a goal was attainable - in spite of difficult circumstances. Chris has been accepted to attend Oral Roberts University, while also serving in the US Army.
