  • Flint Community Schools STEAM Camp

    Capturing the interest of students as early as possible is one of the greatest drivers encouraging future success in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). To that end, the Flint Community Schools offered its first-ever STEAM Camp, a two-week, jam-packed summer experience that blended academics and the arts with fun-filled, hands-on activities designed to increase elementary-age student’s exposure to STEM subjects. By adding art (STEAM), the camp also provided a space for creative thinking and reflection, helping campers internalize what they learned each day. The camp was designed to coordinate with the district’s Brownell-Holmes STEM Academy, which opened in 2013 with support from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation.

  • Flint Michigan 1962 - The Great Community

    To Touch A Child is a fascinating short film from 1962 created by the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation. Flint Michigan was a national leader and innovator in many ways even outside of the automobile industry, the school system being no exception. I grew up in Flint's East Side in the 70's & 80's and can tell you that a positive "can do" attitude permeated the city. I attended Williams Elementary School (built in 1968), which had an Olympic swimming pool with a retractable roof, hockey & ice skating rink, wood shop, tennis court, gymnasium, auditorium, nature preserve, park, football & baseball fields... There was always something to do at the school for anyone who wanted to attend, and I personally benefited from the programs instituted by the great philanthropists of Flint Names lik...

To Touch A Child is a fascinating short film from 1962 created by the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation. Flint Michigan was a national leader and innovator in many ways even outside of the automobile industry, the school system being no exception. I grew up in Flint's East Side in the 70's & 80's and can tell you that a positive "can do" attitude permeated the city. I attended Williams Elementary School (built in 1968), which had an Olympic swimming pool with a retractable roof, hockey & ice skating rink, wood shop, tennis court, gymnasium, auditorium, nature preserve, park, football & baseball fields... There was always something to do at the school for anyone who wanted to attend, and I personally benefited from the programs instituted by the great philanthropists of Flint Names like Whaley, Sloan, Longway, Kearsley, Whiting, Mott and Manley among others. Flint has one of the most interesting history's of any city in the United States. While some outsiders today say the city is dead, the people who lived there and knew what a great city looked like long to see that great community system return. A system that has never existed since Flint. The legacy Frank J. Manley and Charles S. Mott created by funding after school programs using existing Flint public school buildings was the first of its kind and adopted nation wide soon after. Anyone who ever attended an event after school can thank Frank J Manley, who came up with the idea, and Mott, who paid for it. For those not from the Flint area, it might sound crazy, but you could get an almost free education in just about anything you could imagine. Technical, vocational, academic, or just plain recreational, you could sign up for classes that took place after school and better yourself. Today, you'd have to pay thousands for University quality classes at an "extended campus" program. Directed by Herk Harvey, an industrial/educational film director, the film focuses on Cook School in Flint, Michigan. The film was instrumental in the spread of the community school idea throughout the nation. The film begins with children playing in the street, down by the river, while vacant school buildings lie dormant (in the film the newly built Southwestern High School is shown along with Potter Elementary and 2 others). At almost 50 years old, To Touch A Child is a dated film but a remarkable window into Flint culture and American culture at the time. There are hilarious references to the classic housewife dieting and cake decorating of the period. There are highly melodramatic elements and unnecessary camera movement. However the film, thankfully, isn't totally dismissible. And so very pertinent today as the United States struggles to raise its next generation of kids. The US should look at the history of Flint to see it's own future. To Touch A Child - 1962

Gale will also be graduating in April of 2017 with a post-masters education specialist degree with an administrative certification.

Her children’s book “Learning, Recycling, and Becoming Little Heroes” depicts the strength of the Flint children during the water crisis. In addition, her “Reach Higher Ed Series” helps kids get prepared for higher education. Gale noted the importance of higher education by stating “It’s important to get kids thinking about college earlier so they can successfully complete it in a more affordable manner”. To add to her many accomplishments Gale has started a nonprofit called, “Flint Kids Matter” which focuses on improving literacy, getting kids prepared for higher education, developing workforce skills, and recovering from the effects of the Flint Water Crisis. Gale has been recognized as ABC News Person of the Week and has also been nominated for the Christ Enrichment Literacy Award. Those are just a few of her many accomplishments, but her passion to empower, educate and enrich the lives of people within her community supersedes her reputation. Like many kids in Flint, Gale grew up in a single parent household, mother no father and she is the younger of two siblings. Growing up poor, Gale also struggled with literacy so it is easy for her to relate to kids in similar situations. Gale is a survivor of domestic abuse and has conquered many obstacles in her life. Her passion comes from that pain and compels her to help others reach their goals. Gale has a strong faith and believes that through God, along with persistence and prayer you can achieve anything. Gale went on to start her own publishing company and hires many local artists to work alongside her. Her dedication to the Flint community is unparalleled. Gale Glover, Flint Born! Flint Bred! Flint Educated! To purchase any of her books please visit Amazon.com, GloverPCO.com, or email Gale directly at GloverPCO@gmail.com
