As a youngster at Milltown Elementary School, Grant was able to take advantage of an after-school tutoring program the school was offering.
It turned out to be a valuable boost to his education.
After starting, his tutors from the Sylvan Learning Centre credited him for mastering 20 skills and advancing by more than a half a grade level.
And just a few months after that, they were delighted to report that he had mastered a whopping 48 more skills and gained nearly two grade levels!
Congratulations, Grant! And our thanks to the donors of the United Way, whose generosity empowers young learners like him and many others, propelling them toward a stronger and brighter future.
