Honoring Preston Roberts

Preston James Roberts was friend, family, teacher, and inspiration to thousands.  In twenty-five years of public education and over three decades teaching at Turtle Island, his dedication to others' learning has literally spread around the world.  

On July 24th, 2017, Preston passed away from complications due to an inoperable tumor on his liver that prevented oxygen and blood flow and, within the course of three weeks, quickly shut his body down.

We are looking to raise funds to help Preston's family with 1) medical expenses 2) a memorial service and 3) the roof of the family home that Preston was in the process of fixing.  All money goes to the family.  Please contribute today.  No donation is too small.

If you'd like to donate but would rather not use a credit card, checks can be made out directly to Kathleen Roberts and mailed to 2683 Little Laurel Rd Boone, NC 28607.
