Mentoring young minds

Mentoring young minds
As the dozen students filed into the basement room of the Armstrong Baptist Church, the noise level rose precipitously. Some children began trying to touch the ceiling with their finger tips. When some tried it, then it seemed everyone else had to try. After considerable stretching and hopping, they were directed to sit at the tables and bring out their homework. The noise level lowered, but the energy level remained high.
It was the first session of the Armstrong Mentoring Program, a program jointly developed by Central Missouri Community Action and the Fayette School District. By the wide smiles and occasional loud laughter, it was evident students and mentors were enthused about the new program.
