Brunswick Open House Welcomes the Community, Enrolls New Students

Date: March 29, 2010

The Glynn County Ombudsman center in Brunswick, Ga., hosted 50 students, families, administrators and community members at an open house event on March 11.

During the event, guests learned about the Ombudsman approach, toured the center, met staff members and were inspired by student success stories. Glynn County School System School Board Chairman Millard Allen was in attendance and expressed his support of the program that is helping students graduate from high school.

Center director Melissa Parker also shared student work with attendees. She described recent service projects, including the collection of aluminum can pop tops for donation to the Ronald McDonald House and the 25 bags of clothing that students collected for earthquake victims in Haiti.

“Through service projects, our students learn the value of helping others and the impact of their actions on the greater community,” Parker said. “Our students were thrilled to share with our guests all that they have accomplished at Ombudsman.”

The open house generated so much interest in the program that several new students enrolled the next day, and The Brunswick News scheduled a visit. The paper published a feature on the Brunswick center in its March 16 issue.

This month, open houses were also held at centers in Millard, Neb., and Philadelphia.
