Wine Women & Shoes 2018 is only a few weeks away – check out below to learn more about one of our faithful supporters, Ryan Edwards, Shoe Guy and 2017 King of Sole winner. In his own words, read why he is committed to Family Scholar House, our families and being an extraordinary Shoe Guy:
At Family Scholar House, we get the unique opportunity to work with, not only the single-parent students but also their amazing children (the motivation behind the scenes, the reason our parents are striving for a better life for themselves and their children).
The children’s room at Louisville Scholar House, gets a lot of love from our families. During orientations and workshops, you can always find little ones amusing and entertaining volunteers. Books are read and pictures are drawn and rocking horses and trains are played with.
After the anticipation of summer and a break from school, it doesn’t take long for that initial excitement to turn into boredom from a lack of activities or things to do. To combat boredom and summer learning loss, we encourage and find support for our kids to attend various camps and we even create our own. Last week, some of our kids from ages six to 16 attended Career Academy, a camp developed and led by our staff.
