These programs have over 1,200 graduates who, as community trustees, work to make the Pikes Peak region a wonderful place to live, work, and play.
Services: Connections and Strategic Partnerships
We educate current and aspiring leaders about the community, its needs, and its resources; we also connect those leaders with each other. We do this through our Experience the Springs educational tours, our program alumni association, networking events, and maintaining links and knowledge bases for volunteer and other service opportunities. We are also involved in strategic partnerships with other organizations to improve the civic health of the Pikes Peak region.
MTSI Santa’s Help a First Grade class
7th January 2013; Alexandria, VA
Sherry Dold, MTSI’s CHRO, has a daughter who is a 2nd year teacher on a Native American reservation outside of Phoenix. She was recruited by Principal Eric James, who is retired military. He is using the knowledge gained from his military experience and four advanced degrees to "make a difference" on the reservation. The changes in the school, like hiring qualified teachers, has already made in difference by raising the "at grade level" for most grades from around 30% to over 80%. It is Mr. James goal to give the students an excellent educational foundation that will see through high school and perhaps college and break the poverty cycle.
Sherry sent out a wish list for her daughters’ first grade class, as they are in a high risk and very low income environment. Sadly, most of the students go without gifts on Christmas, warm clothes, and decent shoes.
Because of the MTSI special Santas, each child received a coat, a good pair of tennis shoes, a book, and at least 3 items from their wish list to Santa. For most of the children, this was the only Christmas they had.
A special thanks to Cathy Bossemeyer, who not only donated towards the gifts, but sent a stuffed toy for every child.
