Graves Schools bornlearning at Wingo El

Wingo Elementary School in coming weeks will publicize and host training sessions for interested parents of young children throughout Graves County to learn how to help their children under age 5 begin to learn about the world around them. Toyota Motor Corporation, based in Georgetown, has provided substantial funding for a “bornlearning Academy” at the southwestern Graves County school. The United Way of Kentucky and the local chapter of that organization are co-sponsors. The school will provide training for parents in one room while working with their children in another. The two groups then will get back together and practice new skills in teaching and learning. The first session is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Sept. 24. Pictured at the announcement of Wingo’s bornlearning Academy are, from left, Toyota manager of external affairs and community relations Rick Hesterberg, local United Way executive director Vanessa Burns, United Way of Kentucky president Doug Eberhart, Graves County Schools Superintendent Kim Harrison, Wingo principal Sarah Saylor, and Wingo family resource director Tana Jones.
