|On August 13th we held our 2nd Annual Awards Picnic. We had a great turn out, there was a total of 64 people of mentors, mentees, and family. At the Awards Picnic, we recognized|
|— our “Mentee of the Year” Kadian Handy. |
— our “Mentor of the Year” Dan Shidler and
— our “Match of the Year” Tami Stoddard and Jaylynn Watson.
|Thank you all who have made this program possible and for all that you have done.|
|Our Theme for the 2019-2020 year was also announced “Staying True to Yourself”. |
Starting this month through next August we will be focusing on this theme. I have broken the theme down to three sub-themes
— “Self-Discovery” will be from September-December,
— “Act with Integrity” will be January-April and
— “Avoiding a Negative Self-Image” is May-August.
I am really excited about this and I hope our mentors and mentees will learn more about themselves throughout this next year.
