02.02.2015 AFC Daily News Clips – morning edition

Good morning:

Last week, AFC finished out National School Choice Week by taking our message of hope and opportunity to Super Bowl’s radio row where Marcellus Wiley and Lisa Leslie spoke out about their commitment to school choice.
In case you missed it, one of the most powerful Super Bowl ads aired last night in Florida, click here to check it out: http://bit.ly/1z5Vu5C. If you agree with its message, share it with your social media accounts.
Have a great Monday!
