The Education Equal Opportunity Group (EEOG) launched their Third Annual Summer Enrichment and Technology Program. From July 10 to July 21, high school students had the opportunity to learn about Android coding, video game design, financial literacy, conversational Spanish and character development.
“This was the third year of our summer enrichment program and we had 14 students that attended, one commuting from Clarksville every day,” explains George Thomas, President and Founder of the EEOG. “Every one of them were engaged and attentive during the duration of the program. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of students.”
The EEOG’s annual summer program provided a structured program to teenagers who would otherwise have no access to leadership and personal development enrichment activities during the summer. Speakers came from companies such as Google Fiber, UPS, First Tennessee Bank, PLA Media and many more to talk with the students about opportunities with their companies and what they do on a day to day basis. For the past two years the Summer Enrichment program has given 30 high school students the opportunity to grow and learn through networking, training and leadership programs, and this year added 14 more, one student commuting from Clarksville every day.
