LETTER TO THE EDITOR
June 27, 2012 at 1:27 a.m.
Dear Students, Friends and Community,
E4E (Education for Everyone) Adult learning Center is a newly formed nonprofit organization designed to meet all the educational needs in Bay City and Matagorda County. Our sole purpose is to educate, bring hope, and break the barrier of economic disadvantages to groups that are traditionally under served. This program is designed to encourage, motivate and promote well rounded, productive citizens who positively contribute to neighborhoods.
Currently, we are offering G.E.D. and ESL Classes, Resume Writing, Job Career Training, Computer Literacy Training, After School Computer Usage, and After School/Summer Tutorials. This fall we implement two new programs: Parenting Classes and "Dress for Success". Both will heighten E4E, Bay City and Matagorda County. Also, starting July 26, 2012, through August 16, 2012, (every Thursday evening 6:00pm-7:30pm) E4E will be hosting an event "Stepping Out with STAARS". It will provide an opportunity for parents and children to familiarize themselves with the format of the state mandated STAAR Test. E4E will have school district personnel present Math and Reading strategies as well as make and take activities .Be mindful during this upcoming school year; the local and area school districts will be held accountable for their STAAR test scores.E4E would like to assure the community that we are here to support and help them as much as possible. We are striving for Exemplary!!
We have been in awe watching this community come together, embracing and supporting this endeavor. County officials, businesses, churches and individuals have been essential to the success of E4E. I'm a firm believer that we must give back in life, whether it is in money or in kind. Each human being is so constructed that all we want to do is contribute to the well-being of others. So why do we hesitate? Are we waiting for instructions on how, when, where or how much? It is so simple, truly. Look into your conscience and see who has contributed to you, who has made a difference in your life and begin to consider what it is you can do to enhance the lives of others. The universe recognizes our deeds and rewards accordingly.
As we continue to expand our program and ensure quality in challenging economic times, your contributions continue to play a critical role helping E4E offer flexible, high-quality programs for adult learners throughout Bay City and Matagorda County. Oprah Winfrey said, "I don't think you ever stop giving.I think it's an ongoing process. And it's not just about being able to write a check. It's about being able to touch somebody's life." On the behalf of Education for Everyone, I would like extend our sincere thanks to everyone who has provided their time and financial support.
Together, we are building a stronger community and future for young children and families in our community.
Chief of Operation
