Student Achievement Awards
Our Summer Youth Program continues to grow. Thanks to our generous sponsors, this year our program supported at risk students of Mater Academy International Studies and Theodore R. and Thelma A. Gibson Charter School. The program afforded over 200 students the ability to be part of a fun filled, academically rooted summer camp. The student’s days included several hours of daily class time with certified teachers including individualized lessons targeted to raise their academic performance as well as preparing the students for the new school year. Additionally, the students had days of fun-filled activities, including daily arts and crafts, field trips to the Seaquarium and even a “Water Day”. The positive impact this program has had on the students is evident in their schoolwork. We are very proud to serve these students and their families.
WOMEN’S LEADERSHIP INITIATIVE
