“Education is one of the essentials for success, and we are thrilled to come together with peer organizations, teachers, students and others this week to celebrate its importance,” says Eileen Huntington of Huntington Learning Center. “We encourage everyone in our community to get involved in education and support our children as they pursue their educational goals.”
The Huntington Learning Center hosts activities throughout the year to promote education, including free workshops on topics such as homework help, summer learning, SAT/PSAT/ACT exam prep and preparing students for a successful school year. “Our message to families and others in our local community is that today’s children are tomorrow’s leaders, and it is absolutely essential that we equip them with the tools and confidence to succeed,” says Huntington. “Huntington salutes our nation’s teachers and education professionals for striving to do just that. We encourage everyone to recognize their good work during this important annual event.”
