This autumn will be the first time Wanda Harrison will not be thinking about the first day of YSC, Youth-Senior Connection, a program she initiated. In August she would have hosted the teachers from Lakeview Elementary School for lunch and would have made sure they understood how YSC could help their students. In September she would be in close contact with the counselors at Lakeview, encouraging them to suggest students who need a little boost that YSC could provide.
COVID-19 put a crimp in her plans for 2019, 2020, and 2021. With no students in school, the afternoon YSC tutoring program languished and lost momentum. Opening again in March of 2022, YSC averaged only five students per day. In the meantime, the pool of volunteer tutors aged and dwindled. Without their dedicated director, Wanda Harrison, YSC failed to flourish.
Before her death, Wanda suggested an alternate usage for the monies she used for the tutoring program. Accordingly, we will establish a scholarship fund for graduating seniors who went through Lakeview Elementary School. The students will continue to benefit from the hard work they have put into their school years, and we will celebrate their successes here in our church.
