Kayla Webster & Julia Young
Nominated by Jenessa Flores Parker
Like everyone else we have had to move our entire Jumpstart program virtually this year and I could not have done it without my students and their genuine love and care for our program partner children.
Kayla Webster has continued to shine in her role as a corps member and community leader working with preschoolers from under resourced communities and schools. Each week along with her team members she has been present for her classroom preparing them for kindergarten and showing support in any way that she can. Kayla is a true asset to our program and I value her presence very much. Her classroom teachers have also shared that they appreciate her attentiveness and patience that she displays each week especially since keeping the attention of anyone let alone 3-5 year olds is a huge task!
Julia Young has been an incredible program assistant who has also played a huge role in moving our program virtually. She has also amplified our social media presence while collecting data of over 110 children who are participating in our Jumpstart program this school year to ensure we are meeting the needs of the program partners, their families and our community.
