The Jones* family joined us for the first time at Westside STARS After-School Program in the fall. They have four children attending twice a week. Recently, I spoke with their father, who told me that they love the STARS program, and the kids love it too. He said that his oldest son, Brian (6th grade), made the Honor Roll for the first time.
Courtney (6th grade), the Jones’ next door neighbor, also started attending STARS this year. I talked with her uncle, who told me that they really admire what we are doing in the community, and it is really making a difference. Pastor Costy has been helping Courtney with homework, and she recently got her first 100%.
