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.

Update on our 2017 STS Resilient Spirit Scholarship Recipient- Gi'Anna Killian
We are pleased that we have been able to continue to assist Gi'Anna as she continues to take courses at Eastern Florida State College to pursue a career as a Paralegal. In addition to the two $500 scholarships for her Fall and Winter semesters, Shining Through Shadows was able to purchase her textbooks for her Spring and Summer classes in 2018, It was great to see Gi'Anna this past summer and give her a STS teeshirt to wear as her resilient spirit continues to shine.
