A Tribute to our Founder

tribute_-webDuring the Kids of Honor holiday gathering, the board of directors surprised our founder with a video tribute...  and a four foot Orange Chicken! Thanks to Paula Morris for all her hard work and dedication. In 2013, our chicken "Wish Upon a Star" has a new permanent home at Salisbury University in the atrium of the Perdue School of Business.  Another chicken from FeatherFest, "Chicken Noodle Soup" shares the atrium, flanking the entrance. We'll post photos once they arrive in their new home.

Dr. Dave Nagy presents an award and photos to Paula and her husband Jim.

Face Painting and Fireworks

FireworkslizDawn, Reva, Corey and Diane hosted an arts & crafts table for youth attending the fireworks celebration at Salisbury University on July 4th.  In addition to distributing lots of Kids of Honor brochures, interested parents and students learned more about our programs.

Hooray for YEAH!

yeahkids1-_webyeahkids2_--_webReport cards for the first marking term indicate that our students rock! Our high school club called YEAH (Youth Excelling in Academics with Honor) have a GPA of 3.0! More than half of our students are taking Honors and/or Advanced Placement classes! They challenge themselves each year by selecting courses that require them to work harder.

Super Seniors lead by example. Having a group average of 3.6 they are showing their peers it is okay to be smart.

Kids of Honor's Fantastic Freshmen hit the ground running to catch their peers with an average of 3.0!

Way to go! Our students are truly Youth Excelling in Academics with Honors (YEAH) and we congratulate them on excellent markings for this first term.

Dawn Mills, Executive Director, helped the guests understand the impact of Kids of Honor® on our community.
