3rd Annual Thanksgiving Celebration

For three years in a row, Kansas City Urban Young Life has served kids and their families at our Annual Thanksgiving Celebration. This was our 2nd year honoring excellence in education  in Kansas City. We recognized teachers and administrators who have been a part of implementing a reading program called Lead to Read in Kansas City elementary schools. The program engages adults with kids by reading to them once a week. The goal is to get kids excited about reading. Two laptop computes were given away to deserving students along with two free trips to camp. Parents were given gift certificates to popular restaurants. Radio show host Carl Boyd gave the keynote address. What an amazing night of celebration and recognition.
