Exciting news! I was invited to the White House on July 15, 2013, where I attended a reception commemorating the 5000th Daily Points of Light Award presented by the organization, Points of Light, founded by President George H.W. Bush in 1990. Now, the organization has given its 5000th award, signifying the decades of service that President Bush has inspired. At the ceremony, Sight Learning was honored and mentioned (at approximately 25 minutes). You can watch the video here: Points of Light- White House Event. I also had the honor to speak with President Barack Obama, Mrs. Obama, President George H.W. Bush, Points of Light Chairman Neil Bush, and other dignataries who dedicate themselves to community service.
The event, which was held in the East Room of the White House will always be a great memory for Sight Learning, and can hopefully be used to help even more students worldwide. I would like to thank Points of Light, especially Chairman Bush and Points of Light CEO Michelle Nunn and everyone else involved in organizing this fantastic event, it was an honor to be invited and honored and it was an inspirational gathering of amazing people dedicated to service.
