I’m Ronda and have been helping with the Literacy Camp for a couple of years now. My grandkids are almost all grown and live far away, so I love being around the Literacy Camp boys and girls. They keep me young

I’m Eneda and I’m a junior at the Center for Advanced Technologies Program at Lakewood High School. I was introduced to the Micah Center by the advisor for Lakewood High School’s Key Club. I began working September of this year and I have been loving my time as a camp intern.
My name is Ian Blair-Catala, I am a Sophomore at Lakewood High School. Before I went to Lakewood, I attended a small charter school. There, my peers and I fostered a philosophy that focused on caring and listening to the people around you. I have kept that philosophy to this day and it is a big reason why I love working here.
I'm Naseem Hamed and am currently a student in the CAT program at Lakewood High School. I love technology, including robotics and programming. I also really enjoy volunteering with Key Club and helping people in my community. I'm excited to get started and help kids excel in school this year!
