Having always seen a need for children to have an “extra push,” Sheryl McClung Garner founded Envision Children. While her two daughters were in elementary school, Sheryl searched for a summer program that would be a full-day, fun, affordable, and enriching academic experience that her girls could attend. In not finding one, Sheryl began her own academic summer enrichment program, and thus, Envision Children was born.
After the summer program’s huge success, Envision Children began to offer year-round enrichment services in the form of Saturday programs that are intensive and interactive math and science sessions geared for grades 2 through 7, as well as extend day tutoring in mathematics and reading.
Seeing the academic success of our youth and believing that all children can learn, Envision Children’s vision was crafted: To impact students’ academic culture so dramatically, that education will become a top priority in each student’s life.
This vision is successfully accomplished through the organization’s daily mission: To engage students in real life learning where students see how their education benefits them through interactive and fun educational activities.
The BowTie design is inspired by Envision Children’s 3rd grade extended day students. When asked what education meant to them, you can only imagine the answers: drawing, music, gym, and the “fun” things they get to do. Upon discussing what education means, a few students said it meant they were going to college; a few others listed all the academic subjects (math, reading, science, and social studies); and a few said it meant they were going to graduate, get a diploma, and find a job. Putting all of these ideas and definitions together, the perfect definition of “education” came to be. To Envision Children students, education goes beyond the normal k-12; it goes much further and helps them see great futures.
With your purchase of a BowTie, you are not only raising awareness, but $10 will be donated to Envision Children.
