Perfect Attendance in Summer Camp

As a student, Savannah F. prides herself on perfect attendance – even in the summer, when she’s not actually in school.

Rather, Savannah was a summer student in the 2012 R.I.S.E. Real Interactive Summer-Camp Experience, a summer camp for low-income children hosted by GHA and community partners Brenau University, Interactive Neighborhood for Kids, Gainesville City Schools, Georgia Mountain Food Bank, THINK and The Algernon Sydney Sullivan Foundation. (See the video about R.I.S.E.)

“She had perfect attendance in the summer camp,” said Savannah’s mother, Darlene F., who noted that the experience helped bolster Savannah’s reading abilities. “At first, she couldn’t comprehend what she read, but after the camp, she improved a lot with reading,” agreed her dad, Ricky F.

While Savannah attends many events hosted by the GHA, the RISE camp seems to rank among her favorite. “All of them (the students) were excited the day of graduation,” Ricky said. “She wants to come back next year.”
