On June 7, 2008 the Ed Department enjoyed hosting a visit from the Friends for Florida. Emily, Nick, Jordan, Jeremy & Cameron requested a tour to see our cats, and present a donation. Todd Mark, the group advisor said that this group started when his son was asking important questions about the wrongs he would see around him and what he could do to help. So with Todd’s help Jordan gathered a group of friends and started doing fundraising while researching worthy recipients locally. These young people are learning firsthand how they can make a difference.
On the tour these kids had a lot of questions that reflected a high level of knowledge about wildlife and an exceptional understanding of many of the issues at hand. After the tour they presented us with a $200.00 donation, thank you very much!
Mr. Mark later reported that “The Friends for Florida members mentioned it as one of their favorite places to visit for this past school year.” The feeling was certainly mutual as it was truly our pleasure to have the Friends for Florida visit with us, and choose us a beneficiary of their efforts.
