Park Academy

Park Academy is the only school in the state of Oregon designed specifically for educating kids with dyslexia, elementary through high school. In photographing some of the students for the school's new website, I saw first hand a program that is driven with heart and passionate commitment to ensuring these kids don't fall through the cracks. And the support they get from the community at large is incredible, as was evident at last year's fundraiser featuring keynote speaker Henry Winkler, who also struggled with dyslexia.

If this is a cause near and dear to you or someone you know, tickets are still available for this year's fundraiser on June 22. This year's guest speaker is Danny Glover...and I'm not sure who is more excited about that fact...the school or me.
