Each November, in celebration of American Education Week
, the Foundation brings business and civic leaders into the classrooms – in a fun and engaging way -- to talk with students in about academics, careers and the future.
On November 19, 3200 volunteers made 6,860 presentation at 165 schools. What an amazing impact!
Some volunteers read books to pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten students. Some taught practical, personal skills to high school students such as managing a checking account and using credit cards wisely. Others involved entire classes in projects like designing a web site. A few even got visits from doctors and dentists.
A huge Thank You goes to all who shared their expertise and experiences with our students for enriching their lives and expanding their world.
