This year we had our most well attended annual meeting in years. 40 people gathered in the Edison High School commons to participate in the business meeting and then enjoy the documentary by member, Dr. Pamela Mears, 'It's Never Too Late'.
We had a chance to meet Sandy Meade and Mike Herron, two siblings who were diagnosed with dyslexia in their 40's. They had the courage and perserverence to seek out Dr. Mears' skills as a teacher and ask her to teach them to read. They describe Pam as 'an answer to a prayer'.
After working with Pam and achieving success, they realized they had a powerful and moving story that needed to be shared.
As a thank you for sharing with us, they were each given a print made by a student from Park Academy with the inscription "Never bend your head. Always hold it high. Look the world straight in the eye" - Helen Keller.
We hope to make their documentary available to you online in the near future so that those who could not attend the meeting will also be able to enjoy their compelling story.
