We do apologize for not posting earlier this week! Today was the final day of the inaugural Find Your Future Summer Education Camp and we wanted to post an update to let you know that it was an overwhelming success!
We had 15 boys come to the camp for this inaugural year. The boys range in age from rising 9th graders to rising 12th graders, and they represent a variety of different backgrounds. During the camp, the boys heard from admissions and advising, OU student life, and a host of outstanding educators from around Oklahoma and two other states - Mississippi and Washington, D.C. These young men were thoughtful, engaged, and enthusiastic participants in the program and reported that they enjoyed the speakers and the camp experience very much. Hopefully they will eventually want to become teachers - only time will tell on that - but we do believe they will view teaching and learning in a whole new light.
We are confident that this program has made a significant and lasting impact, and this camp is only a beginning of what we hope proves to be a relationship between these boys, the Jeannine Rainbolt College of Education, and the University of Oklahoma. We cannot thank you enough for your support of this program! Without your help, it simply would not have been possible!
