On April 19th, 2023, The Dalton and Linda Floyd Family Mentoring Program and Coastal Carolina University held the 13th Annual TEAL (Talking Education And Learning) Youth Day.
This program provides an opportunity for college students to serve as role models for children in our local schools from grades K-8. Creating a positive relationship takes time, so mentors visit their young friends for an hour, at least once each week for one semester. The program encourages CCU students to be positive role models for children in area schools to ensure their success in and out of the classroom.
After one year of service, the mentors are eligible to apply for the Dalton and Linda Floyd Family Mentoring Scholarship. The mentoring program continues to do amazing things in the community, and we are so thankful for all of the staff and mentors involved. A huge “thank you” goes out to Rebecca Masters, the Program Coordinator for the Dalton and Linda Floyd Family Mentoring Program.
Mr. and Mrs. Floyd are so glad to be able to give back to the community in this way. Since 2004, the Mentoring Program has led to over 4500 undergraduate students helping to mentor and guide primarily fourth and fifth graders in and around Horry and Georgetown counties. Each year we hope to see more students helped and more kids excited about learning and about their futures.
