Scholarship provided in memory of Gloria Daniel to be awarded to DSS Caseworkers and used to further the recipient’s education in the social work field.
Cal Mary Brown at the SCFPA office for details. 803-865-2020.
Scholarship for foster youth pursuing a degree in Early Childhood Education. Graduating Seniors may apply. Leila McGee Daniel was passionate about teaching underprivileged children. During her 32 years of teaching pre-school, she would often record books and send cassette players to the children in her class so that they could listen to books being read. She felt this would give “her” children the advantage they would need when they began kindergarten at 5 or 6 years old. The Daniel family is providing these scholarships in Leila’s memory as she finally succumbed to cancer in 2007 after a courageous 15-year battle. Please contact Mary Brown for application information at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the SCFPA office at 803-865-2020.
Mission Statement: To see that children in foster care get portable musical instruments and have music-related learning experiences that will stay with them wherever they go.
We are born with the capacity to enjoy and make music. Its rhythms are those of our breathing, our heartbeat, our patterns of sleeping and waking. Ample research confirms the benefits of music-emotional, physical, developmental. Music can boost children's brain power and improve their memory. Making music with others teaches discipline, reasoning, social skills, teamwork, and spatial intelligence. Musical training and experience stimulate creativity.
Our children deserve music in their lives. It's the aim of Kids Make Music to help them do just what the name says. Here are some ways we can make music a meaningful part of our children's lives:
