ETCA Raises Money for the D.C. Trip

I, once again, apologize for not posting in a few weeks. With final grades being due at both schools and then the fundraising activities that we have done, there hasn't been a lot of idle time to sit and type! Also, I taught an Energy Based class for Lindsey's Roger's Explorers program using ETCA materials last Monday and Tuesday! Whew! Anyway, I am so glad to announce that ALL STUDENT FEES ARE PAID! We have had several donations from "Friends of the Academy"! I would like to take a few minutes to thank these people: Nation's Medicines, Jim Hadley at Majestic Yachts, Mike and Wanda Hatcher, Larry & Sheila Bryant, Rollin Pyles, Bob Johnston with AIKCU, Mason Dyer with AIKCU, Michael Azzara with Siemens, Dr. Phil Aaron, The Office of County Judge Executive Ann Melton, Adair County School Board, Gary Cox with AIKCU, Ellen Zornes with Adair County Substance Abuse Coalition, Leo and Donna Kislan, and the miscellaneous donors that attended our car wash! There is still money coming in, and that money will be used to take the students to eat somewhere nice, buy their lunch on Saturday and/or Sunday, help those who have limited spending money get a souvenir, etc.
We are having a preparation meeting this week sometime, and then we will be leaving about midnight on Thursday the 24th! I am driving and LWC van with 12 high school students and my 6 year-old, start praying for me NOW!
I am currently teaching high school math for the Upward Bound program at Lindsey starting today through July 2nd. So I will try to get a few more posts done during this time because there are lots of activities that I still need to share with you!

Talk to you soon!

  1. Heather....I do not know how you accomplish it all, other than just by doing what needs to be done. These kids love you and look up to you beyond comprehension. I thank you for your encouragement, support, and love that you give these kids (mine included). If there is ANYTHING I can do for you to be of assistance....(even though you seem to assist me with David and I am FOREVER grateful) please do not EVER hesitate to ask.
