The Kentucky Chapter has an initiative that is near and dear to our hearts, Bridging the Literacy Gap. Thru spreading of the good news about the initiative, the Sowing Seeds thru Faith LLC, summer camp invited the Kentucky Chapter to participate in a learning experience day. Sowing Seeds thru Faith has 110 campers, on June 14th, 2018 they had 107 campers in attendance. The program has students from 1st thru 8th grade and we hosted 4-one hour sessions. The students were engaged, participated and had fun learning about technology. When asked, why is Bridging the Literacy Gap important? Da’Marrion Fleming, CEO stated “It’s better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be prepared. Reading does just that!” The NETwork Kentucky is bringing the fire in 2018. We’re heating things up and bringing awareness to the Literacy Gap that exists among our students.
Voting ended 12 noon CT, Monday, July 9.
