Demarco Goes To S.T.E.M. in Chicago
WOW! My son Demarco Williams has been nominated into National Youth Leadership Forum to Explore STEM at Loyola University in Chicago Illinois June 2016.
The S.T.E.M program is a unique learning experience for bright, forward-thinking students who will evolve into our next generation of innovators, engineers, doctors, software developers, mathematicians, and physicists.
We are totally honored to accept this nomination by his 3rd grade teacher Mrs. Johnson! Demarco, or more affectionately referred to as "DJ," has excelled and exceeeded expectations in so many areas of his life. We are so very proud of him as he reminds us all that he is working so hard because he wants to become an engineer when he grows up!
DJ, in our eyes, is already our little engineer. You can almost always find him building something. Whether he's asking me to save all the paper towels and toilet paper rolls to make a hamster jungle, or rolling up and twisting my aluminum foil into a robot to do his chores, Demarco is constantly seeking knowledge to fulfill his curiosity of the nature in how things work.
Demarco excells in writing and mathematics as well. Just last year as a second grader, he wrote a poem that won first place in the Clayton County Public Schools Literary Contest. This year, he tested into Accelerated Math courses, after displaying mastery of third grade math and demonstrating his understanding as a peer tutor to his class mates.
I know, I know, I'm bragging on my kid, Right? But can you blame me? DJ is gifted! And what better way to reward the ones who work hard to become our future leaders than to put them in a position to excell even further?
Demarco needs another $1000 to attend STEM @ Loyola in Chicago. Help us get there!
We'd like to thank you in advance for partnering with us!!!
