Here are a few candid shots of Team Darden, a group with lots of character and energy. We held our summer celebration there last week, and our special guest was Horry County Schools Superintendent, Dr. Cindy Elsberry. She asked lots of questions and took quite a few photos and videos for her blog.
We were pleased to present the following young scholars with a $25 Wal-Mart gift card in recognition of their perfect attendance: Kenya James, David Grissett, and Stacie Smith. Everyone else received a $10 giftcard with which they can buy a backpack or other school supplies.
Our biggest reader of the summer, Meshalean James, took home a brand new laptop computer which was donated by Freedom Readers tutor and Board Treasurer, Dr. Ken Small. Every tutor and scholar received a free ticket to the Myrtle Beach Pelicans game, and more than 40 of us attended last night. Big fun was had by all!
