Kindling Young Minds – HCSOF Supports a Collaborative Community Project with the HCSO and CITGO

13-Jul-2016

A directed donation by a generous donor to the HCSOF has supported the recent purchase of Kindle Readers that were awarded to students who have demonstrated a commitment to their education with perfect attendance records for the school year to encourage on-going learning and summer reading. Generally, studies have shown that educational opportunities for learning and literacy decrease the likelihood of juvenile encounters with law enforcement.

Select students from Alief and Spring Branch ISDs were the recipients of an individual Kindle to encourage on-going learning, education and literacy to potentially at risk students. This collaborative project was made possible with the joint support of CITGO’s Fueling Good, “Kindling Young Minds” program in collaboration with HCSOF and the HCSO.

Representatives of CITGO, Maj. Moritz, Maj. Woody Mitchell, and Sgt. Hall from the HCSO joined Katrina Arnim Liaison on behalf of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Foundation and district administrators and principals to honor these students’ accomplishments and to provide encouragement for continued reading and literacy.
