Shining Through Shadows Expands Mission to 


Help  Younger Resilient Spirits Shine


August 2017



Resiliency must be developed early, so we have expanded our education related mission to the elementary school level.  Shining Through Shadows has become a community partner with Sherwood Elementary in Melbourne, Florida. Thirty copies of Rules for a Knight by Ethan Hawke were donated to initiate a 6th grade leadership project at Sherwood Elementary. ‚Äč
