Derek, a second grader, attends NOC’s after school and enrichment programs at the Oaks Learning Center in Hilton Head Island. He is an excellent student, dedicated to learning and acquiring new knowledge. On Wednesday this week (September 27), Derek got off the school bus glued to his book, reading intensely with an expression of joy.
Instead of joining the other kids for a snack and short break before entering the learning center, Derek continued reading his book. He was in his own world, oblivious to the noise of the children around him.
Derek is a smart kid with a bright future.
