COOL Values (Our Story)
SR1 (Scientific Research) was founded by Tamu Green in 2005 and incorporated in 2007. Being a native of Mississippi, Green understands firsthand the various factors resulting from lack of health, education, and technology that plague Mississippi and the nation. Acknowledging the factors at large, Green formed a team of dedicated, driven, and passionate leaders to help obtain his mission of eliminating disparities in health, education and technology.
Under visionary leadership, SR1 has begun to offer evidenced-based, innovative, and efficiently-run programs that are aimed at doing nothing less than breaking the cycle of generational issues for the 300 children it serves, as well as their families and communities.
SR1 has experienced incredible growth – from the number of citizens that we serve to the breadth of our services. However, one thing has stayed consistent: the agency’s “whatever it takes” attitude when it comes to helping others to succeed by using innovative scientific methods and tools.
SR1 has assembled a multidiscipline and diverse staff with high-level expertise that can serve the public. Therefore, collecting the brightest multidiscipline talent of those that are smart and have the passion of helping others has formed SR1 and is one of the goals of the organization.
SR1 offers innovative methods in learning and utilizes a proven holistic approach. All SR1 programs are offered free to the public, which is made possible through grants, partners, and donations from people like you.
