Campti Community Development Center’s Community would like to congratulate Peyton, a mentor/mentee of the Outreach Mentoring Program, for being selected as Student of the Year at Magnet Elementary School. She has a passion for reading and spends time with mentees by encouraging them to read. You can often find her in a group with mentees taking turns reading. She is also excellent at storytelling by summarizing a novel that she read.
Her passion for reading has afforded her the opportunity to excel academically. She maintains “Honor Roll” status and has received honors for the district. Peyton now has an opportunity to attend a leadership conference in Washington D. C. this summer.
When Chloe’s father enrolled her in the program, he explained that Chloe was having trouble as she had lost her grandmother, a life-long educator.
Her grandmother was the person primarily responsible for encouraging Chloe academically. Chloe was uninterested in learning. As a part of mentorship, a mentor found out that Chloe not only had a love for reading, but she also had another interest that had been hidden under the shell she created. Chloe’s father previously worked in the film industry and introduced her to a new passion for film. Working with a mentor, Chloe and her friends began recording videos and taking pictures as they spent time with their mentor.
