“The quality, not the longevity, of one’s life is what is important.” By Martin Luther King, Jr.
First…our thoughts and prayers are sent to the Kobe Bryant family and to all the other families who experienced the loss of loved ones in Sunday’s tragic accident. As a basketball fan, I fully enjoyed watching Bryant for many years and have been equally impressed with his work and positive influence on kids since his retirement. Condolences to all the families.
The Campaign is on Track!
We are now in our second week of our two fundraising campaigns and we can report progress has been made in each one.
Anne G. Broady Scholarship Fund
AGBSF Goal: $1,500.00 Actual: $980.00 Deadline: February 14, 2020
We had upward movement from 52% of goal to 65% this past week. We can hopefully make up the balance of 35% very soon and declare Victory…again! As a matter of fact, we are ahead of past years at this time. “Friends” are very amazing folks.
Executive Director Salary Support
EDSS Goal: $2,000.00 Actual: $600.00 Deadline: March 13, 2020
We also had upward movement helping the Copey Learning Center pay a decent or reasonable salary to the Executive Director during the 2020 school year. Keep in mind, this is the “only paid” position at the Copey Learning Center.
Copey is a rural community and essentially an agriculture based community. It is a significant challenge to recruit and hire someone with the necessary credentials to work as a director at the Copey Learning Center or anywhere else in the community.
Since 2015, our salary support provided to the Copey Learning Center has helped obtain very wonderful, talented, and competent directors. Angela was the first hired director and then Ana Yancy followed. Both, although very underpaid, were great school administrators (directors). In 2019, Andrea was hired as the third director and worked well until the lure of a better opportunity resulted in her early departure. Our current Director, Ines Sugura Serrana is now the fourth director as we just compleed our fifth year of salary support. We are very convinced that our support is critical to having competent and strong leadership keeping the doors of the Copey Learning Center open and properly functioning. Our help is greatly needed.
If you have not financially supported either campaign in the past…be a little different this time around.
In the Copey world, ten or twenty dollars means a great deal and adds up quickly to help provide scholarships to kids who really desire and benefit from having an English education.
