Spending the afternoon volunteering at the Lakewood Golf tournament was not only a great way to help raise money for their scholarship fund but I even got try my hand at golf. I learned a lot but think I may need a few more lessons in the future!
Spending the day at “The Learning Tree’s Woody’s Song School” was a highlight of my summer trip to Alabama! I had the amazing opportunity to spend the afternoon getting hands-on experience working with autistic children. They were truly inspirational and I experienced how much fun it can be learning and teaching in different environments. A young boy put such a smile on my face and made me laugh when he looked at me and said; “Well helloooo, beautiful”!
In effort to build girls of courage, confidence and character, representatives of the Be Your Best Self Program and I packed into the gym of the church’s Activity Center at Spring Hill Baptist Church and danced the night away to pop and rock music. In connection with Be Your Best Self Day,we had the chance to speak to attendees about the importance of eating healthy, keeping good grades and living a balanced life. The mission of the program is to educate girls to become role models and show them the importance of having and reaching goals.
