Reflection: Summer Learning Programs

Now that the school year has started back up, I wanted to take a quick second and reflect on an experience from this summer. 


As education has always been a passion of mine, I had the opportunity to visit a Summer Learning program for children at the old Daniel Payne School. I learned of the program from my close friend Jennifer Gray who works for the Daniel Payne Foundation. The program is for girls and boys in grades 3rd-6th and was started by friend Dr Martin Nalls.

The program is one of the SAIL programs working to equip children with academic and life skills they need to be successful as adults. In just their second year, they had 87 children enrolled!

I am shown here with my tour guides at the school and was so impressed with all the children I met and the program overall. Thank you, Dr Nalls, for your passion to see children educated and thinking outside the box in doing so! Many thanks as well to Jim Wooten for the funding this CAMP program receives from you as part of the Sail program!
