In this photo by the ubiquitous Gentry W. Trotter, officials are shown gathered to ribbon-cut, tour, and listen first-hand to area at-risk youngsters during the opening of “The Can! Academies of St. Louis” in north St. Louis, 4300 Goodfellow Boulevard.

The school is the City’s first state-sponsored charter school.
