Harwood Center Hosts Breakfast for Hope Church Staff

We kicked the morning off by presenting a wonderful breakfast to our friends and partners at Hope Church. Thanks to them, we’re able to not only provide our specialized services in a convenient Cordova location, but also give Harwood students opportunities for inclusion with typically developing preschool students! Pictured are Harwood Center Executive Director, Helena Tyszka Powell, and Hope Church Preschool Director, Janie Brooks!

SunTrust Bank Volunteers at Harwood Center

In partnership with United Way of the Mid-South’s Days of Caring 2017 campaign, SunTrust Bank sent an awesome team of volunteers to us on September 13. The group took a tour of Harwood’s Hope Church campus, then cleaned our indoor playgrounds from top to bottom! They also gave high-fives and hugs as students dismissed for the day. Thank you, SunTrust!

Gloria and Eddie - 39 Years of Service to Harwood Center!

On September 15th, we gave special recognition to Ms. Gloria Sanders and Mr. Eddie Hightower. That day marked 39 years of service as teaching associates at Harwood Center for Gloria and Eddie! That’s right, they began work together on the same day 39 years ago. They’re both still in love with their work and enjoy the bright smiles of their students each day. Currently, they’re helping Harwood pivot to the future by teaching in our Orange Mound Hanley Elementary classroom. Thanks, Gloria and Eddie!
