While working in a Title I school system, Lisa identified a need for better instruction. So, with $100 and almost no business experience, she founded and grew Top Score Writing into a million-dollar venture. Today, the company specializes in writing-specific curriculum for grades 2-12. Top Score Writing is the one and only program specifically designed to prepare students for various state assessments. The curriculum has been adopted nationally by hundreds of public, private, and charter schools, as well as several homeschool organizations - positively impacting tens of thousands of students.
Lisa Collum holds a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and a master’s degree in Education. She purchased Coastal Middle and High School in 2015 and turned it into a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in 2019.
The Women in Business Committee meets the second Thursday of every month in the Chamber Board Room at 12:00 pm. Their mission is to recognize women as valued leaders of the community through the ATHENA Award program. For more information,contact Kirby Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org
