Every tomorrow is an outcome of what I do today, and the beauty of it all is that today is happening all the time.” By Craig D. Lounsbrough

Tomorrow is the 1st Blank Page for the 2019 year.
The 2018 year is very close to an end and according to our 2018 scorecards, we did some amazing things over the past twelve months. Now, we will start working on a new year full of events bringing some joy to this wonderful community.
Commitment to the Board
The Copey Learning Center Board of Directors is being sent a formal letter commiting our support for another year. Based on our past year’s performance, there is very strong evidence our level of interest and support for the Copey Learning Center and its mission remains very high. Overall, “Friends of Copey” has added several new “Friends” over the year supporting our work. Thank you for joining us. And, we are also very honored and proud to have our long term supporters who have been involved most of or all of the five years we have been supporting the Copey Learning Center.
In a couple of weeks, we will once again kick off the annual Anne G. Broady Scholarship Fund Campaign and the annual Annual Salary Support we provide for the Executive Director’s position. Both campaigns are essential to keeping as many kids as possible enrolled in the Copey Learning Center and to ensure there is strong, competent, and consistent leadership managing the daily operation of the Center. Our support in both of these areas have literally put Copey on the map as a very unique and successful, grass-roots educational center.
It is Most Noteworthy!
It has been said several times and it is extremely noteworthy to keep in mind really how difficult it is for a small rural community with extremely limited family revenue sources to enroll their kids in the Copey Learning Center. And, understand how difficult it is for a community of these same families to sustain a 10 month long educational program year after year. In fact, to accomplish this is nearly impossible without outside and continuous support as provided by “Friends of Copey”. And, the “Friends” method that is applied to provide this support is equally extraordinary.
Let us get ready! Similar to all prior years, we can just bet some unbelievable events will help mark the great success we can look forward to in 2019. I hope you will continue to be supportive and truly “making a difference”!
