This past weekend Kalin Griffin, Cape Eleuthera Institute's Human Resources Manager, and Cape Eleuthera Foundation board member Stephen Holowesko had the pleasure of greeting education reformer Geoffrey Canada at a US Embassy event in Nassau. Canada, who has been recognized by President Obama for his work in education reform, met with Bahamian leaders to shared insights from his work on closing the achievement gap in Harlem, New York through his organization Harlem Children's Zone. The Island School and CEI have a strong relationship with Harlem Children Zone's Promise Academy; for the past several summers, students from HCZ Promise Academy have visited our campus for educational programming. We are looking forward to continuing this relationship and hope that Mr. Canada will be able to make it to Cape Eleuthera to visit soon.
