The Carolina Panthers recently featured one of our former campers, Genesis Gates, with the "Keep on Pounding" award to honor her battle with Lymphoma. After attending camp Genesis went on to earn a cosmetology license and is now a college student at St. Augustin College.
Birmingham City Schools recently received virtual Culture Bump™ training, during which they learned how to communicate more effectively. They graciously put together a short testimonial video to explain the ways in which Culture Bump™ has helped them both personally and professionally.
On November 30 and December 1, CEOE provided training in the Culture Bump™ Approach to educational leaders in the Trussville City Schools. Superintendent Dr. Pattie Neill, assistant superintendents, other educational leaders and teachers engaged in two days of Culture Bump training to enhance the learning experience for students in the suburban Birmingham district.
