Lisa Wilkins ’22MED created the Mentors Empowering Our Wildcats (MEOW) Group that met on Fridays to read Dwayne Reed’s “Simon B. Rhymin’” at T.S. Cooper Elementary School in Sunbury, North Carolina. Wilkins’ idea behind MEOW was to create a mentorship program to help students build positive relationships with male mentors through reading, and to provide a welcoming environment where that could occur.

Wilkins earned her master’s degree in new literacies and global learning - reading education last semester. While in the program, Wilkins took ECI 508: Teachers As Leaders with Associate Professor Jill Grifenhagen. It was in that class that Wilkins had a spark of inspiration to create the mentorship program.

Since there was only one male teacher at the school members of the Gates County Community Partnership, as well Gates County principals, high school teachers and even the county superintendent, Barry Williams, stepped in to serve as the students’ mentors. At the final session, each student was given a kite, which they assembled and flew with the mentors.
Just a reminder. 😌
