Mentors meet their charges

October 2014

St. Luke United Methodist Church hosted the fourth annual mentor meet and greet celebration for students attending the Comer schools. The PULSE mentor program was created to develop lasting and meaningful relationships between mentors and mentees in the Hartsville community. The program has more than 60 mentors serving 70 students in the four Comer schools.

Over 50 students, parents, teachers and district officials attended the event. To break the ice and create a more relaxed atmosphere, there were games and activities for everyone. In addition, two students performed for all in attendance. Austin Burgess, a student at West Hartsville elementary, provided a formal welcome in the form of a poem. Ja'Leya Liles, a student at Thornwell School for the Arts, delivered a rousing rendition of Kelly Clarkson's song, Breakaway. This is the first year the students/mentees have performed.
