After I wrote the first ‘Hood Heroes of Hurricane Ike piece on Khallid Greene and IN-CERT, I got an overwhelming response especially because everyone likes the name….maybe I should hurry up and trademark it! What do you think? (smile)But seriously I like recognizing those who get overlooked at times so I have decided that this will be a series for the next several months wherein every week I will find someone or organization that went beyond the call of duty to do their part during Ike.
This week I would like to recognize the works of Dr. Reagan Flowers (pictured below in red shirt), who is the founder of CSTEM Teacher and Student Support Services. On September 18, 2008 CSTEM volunteered by providing fun science, technology, engineering, and mathematics enrichment to over 50 children at the 3rd Ward Multi-service Center. These were children who were displaced due to temporary school closures. CSTEM also thanked the 3rd Ward Multi-service Center for donating space. We thank Dr. Flowers and those great volunteers for putting a smile on our children’s faces during a rough time….and they did it through educational fun!
