Education Empowerment and Disaster Relief Services

The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.

About Us

Ruth’s Education and Relief Services (RERS) Inc. is a nonprofit 501c3 Service Organization focused on Education Improvement and Disaster Relief Support. The organization was founded in loving memory of my mother who passed away in January 2022. Mom was educated at Mt. Olive School (Laurel Mississippi) and attended Alcorn College (now Alcorn State University) where she received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education in 1963. Upon graduation, she began her teaching career in Batesville, MS as an elementary school teacher and grew to love every facet of education. Looking for new challenges, she moved to New Jersey in 1969 continuing her teaching career with Newark Board of Education in New Jersey.

After 39 rewarding years in the classroom, mom retired and relocated back to her hometown of Laurel Mississippi. At this juncture in life, mom continued her teaching career and began to mentor and work part time in the Laurel School system for another successful 14 years. In addition, mom left a lasting impact with her community during times of natural disasters and family hardships. My mom dedicated her entire life to the youth, educational uplift, and relief of the suffering. As a result of her superior service and love for her community, the Ruth’s Education and Relief Services Inc. nonprofit organization will continue to keep her spirit and passion lifted high!
