Being Compassionate…Investing

“The failure to invest in youth reflects a lack of compassion and a colossal failure of common sense.”     By Coretta Scott King

The Copey Learning Center is on a two week vacation at this time so there is very little information to report on from there.

In other news, we are still excited over the recent 2019 Pathway Project as I have begun to officially bring everything to a close.

Since the dust has settled and activities have slowed down considerably, it occured to me these 2019 Pathway Students have been involved with the Learning Center for several years. I have practically watched them grow since “Friends of Copey” began in late 2013.

Looking back over the photos I have collected and have shared with you, I thought I would share some of them again. These photos are of Mariana who has been attending the Learning Center for several years.

Some of you will also remember how successful Mariana was as a Spelling Bee participant. Each year of competition she would move closer and closer to becoming a 1st place winner on the national level. There are many of these success stories since we have been closely watching many Copey students grow and develop over the years.

The 2019 Pathway Project was very exciting and rewarding as many of you actually met Mariana and saw up close what a wonderful young lady she has become. She exudes so much confidence and maturity. Group Photo

I also have old photos of the two other Pathway students dating back a few years. Dayana and Jimena, similar to Mariana were so young when they began their English education and also have become very excellent young students.

Thank you for helping these students, for being compassionate, and for investing in their future as they become confident and amazing young folks. 

 

 

One thought on “Being Compassionate…Investing

  1. Thank you for your bringing this project to my knowledge (the girls came to our 50th high school reunion) and then allowing me to become one of the Friends of Copey. I am proud to invest in these young people, for they are, indeed, our future.
