Light Up Learning is coming June 20

Brain Bag mom
Domonique Murry got a bundle of joy in February with the birth of her son, Caiden Cleveland. Murry also received a special gift at Baptist Hospital with her new baby: An SCI Brain Bag. The early brain development kit came in handy to help Murry with her newborn.

“The Brain Bag helped me understand the importance of talking to my baby, reading to him, singing and making eye contact,” said Murry, 27, a mother of three. “It is a good tool to help mothers help their babies develop. It helps me form a bond after birth.”

Since mid-2017, parents like Murry have been receiving Brain Bags. Through the end of March 2019, more than 10,200 Brain Bags have been given to families who have given birth at Baptist, Sacred Heart and West Florida hospitals as part of SCI’s effort to improve school readiness in the Pensacola area. Our local hospitals are provided these Brain Bags at no charge to them, something we are able to do only through the generosity of sponsors and donors who believe in our work and commitment to the community.

School readiness has a huge influence on school completion rates — and that is something that matters a great deal to a person’s future job earnings.

Each year the Studer Community Institute hosts a series of events, to raise awareness and funding to support our mission to improve the quality of life in our community.  Light Up Learning is our signature event, set for June 20, 2019, at Sanders Beach Community Center. Once again, SCI Board Member — and recently retired Super Bowl Champion — Josh Sitton is hosting the event.

The Light Up Learning fundraiser supports the Institute’s work to make our community an Early Learning City by working together in three key areas:

— Brain development education for Escambia County mothers within 48 hours of childbirth.
— Parent education for children living within our county’s pockets of poverty.
— Training for healthcare staff, home-visit providers and community partners to provide additional teaching and support for parents in need.

Light Up Learning is set to begin at 5:30 p.m. The event will include live music, early learning inspired food, live and silent auctions and more.
