Future Heroes (3rd-8th)

Future Heroes toured the National Center for Aviation Training in early 2015.

Future Heroes provides direct mentoring by adult Heroes to boys in 3rd-8th grades. Recently, the Future Heroes have been focused on building skills in STEM — science, technology, engineering and math — through hands-on science activities.  STEM efforts are led by Heroes Derek Morgan, a WSU aerospace engineering graduate and manager of the FAA’s Military Certification Office in Wichita, Taylor Countee and Roy Moye, recent WSU grads in STEM fields, who now work at Koch Industries and Spirit AeroSystems, respectively.

About 50 boys meet weekly for dinner, homework help and program activities at Chester Lewis Academy.  In addition to STEM programs, they focus on building reading skills, as well as community service. Future Heroes also go with adult Heroes on four to six fun outings a year, such as sporting events, fishing, and much more. Heroes that make this program possible by volunteering their time include Sherdeill Breathett, Buddy Shannon, Eric Hayden, Wayne Bell, Devon Lockard, Taylor Countee plus several additional Heroes.

In addition to the weekly mentoring sessions held at Chester Lewis Academy, RMRH has established mentoring relationships with Gordon Parks Academy, Spaght Elementary and Mueller Elementary.

All mentoring sessions introduce boys to the four character traits necessary to be a successful man and a “HERO.” Boys are taught the four traits taken from the RMRH credo: To be Honorable, Exemplary, Responsible and Optimistic. These lessons are the foundation of all RMRH mentoring programs.

RMRH Literacy Program– Future Heroes enjoy group reading at mentoring sessions. RMRH offer special reward incentives for completing book reports!

RMRH Future Heroes Outing: STEM & MUSICAL ARTS
Pictures from November’s symphony outing with the Wichita Symphony Orchestra. We are delighted that the boys were exposed to great orchestral pieces and Dr. Salgado (José Francisco Salgado – visual artist). RMRH is eager to diversifying the boys education excursions. It speaks to our vision and gets us out of our familiar and comfortable boxes. We develop well rounded and engaged young men.
