2nd District Congresswoman, Robin Kelly,
visits Lincoln Early Center!

On Tuesday, October 17, 2017, 2nd District Congresswoman Robin Kelly visited our Lincoln Early Learning Center to read a story to students on money and financial savings. The book, titled “Money Does Grow on Trees,” teaches younger children about money, from financial savings, to spending, and investments. Google Books notes that the book emphasizes on offering “exercises and concrete examples on everything from responsible budgeting to understanding the difference between "want" and "need" for children of every age.”

Following the story, students were able to ask questions about the book, and also about the job duties of the congresswoman. Mrs. Kelly also shared with students a little about her work and provided information about the Library of Congress, located in Washington D.C. Mrs. Kelly and her Administrative Chief of Staff, Ms. Audra Wilson, donated several books to students and the learning center’s library media center. We are incredibly grateful for Mrs. Kelly and her staff for taking the time out of their very busy schedule to read to our children, as well as, donate a gracious amount of books to our future leaders.

Students concluded the day’s activities by participating in an engaging lesson on money, saving, and spending, provided by Chloe McKenzie, Financial Advisor for BlackFem Investments, and Jihan Dubose, District Representative for Congresswoman Kelly’s office. Mrs. McKenzie taught students the importance of “growing your financial seed,” and how you can turn 1 dollar into 100 dollars, and so on.

Others in attendance at the event included Mrs. Bonnie Rateree, Board of Education President; Mrs. Johnnetta Miller, Superintendent of Schools; Dr. David Lopez, Assistant Superintendent; Mr. Ryan Whitcomb, Data/Communications Manager; Ms. Ethel Hayes, retired teacher; Ms. Taiyuan Banks-Tillmon, Principal; Mrs. R.J. Neal, Assistant Principal; Ms. Yolanda Brown, Parent Coordinator; Ms. Angie Cross, Lincoln Building Substitute; and Ms. Heather Johnson, Technology Integration Specialist.

District 147 appreciates the support of the Congresswoman’s Office, as well as Mrs. McKenzie from BlackFem, for providing such a wonderful learning opportunity for our early learners.
