Who We Are
Willie and Cynthia Gipson Sr. have been helping others most of thieir lives. Willie started out protecting kids from bullies in school. While doing so, a great relationship on both sides was established. Through the gifted negotiating and coaching skills, he was able to keep both sides coming together for common causes. Playing together in team sports he eventually became a career coach, mowed lawns and did errands for the adults in the neighborhood. Understanding that coming together, we could accomplish more prompted the formation of The K. B. Polk/North Park Reunion Alumni.
This organization comes together every five years to have a class reunion and the last three years we have collaborated with community base organizations to help bring “Unity in the Community”. We give academic scholarships, have live entertainment, job fairs, Aids testing, games for kids, spades & dominoes tournament while we recognize the good work in the community. Every Christmas toys are given away in the neighborhood, food baskets are passed out at Thanksgiving and back to school supplies given to students every fall. We are dedicated to providing the best service and care to children and adults who are in need.
Cynthia an aircraft engineer for fourteen years decided to change careers, becoming a teacher, leaving the aircraft industry. Her desire to teach and help others made it an easy transition being highly energetic and enthusiastic; her emphasis is on providing feedback to each student. Currently she focuses on our after school tutoring and nutrition programs.
Today’s youth still need mentors, role models (male and female) to help guide them in the right direction and teach them how to make better choices. Because of our desire to help others we continue to bring youth and adults together to make an impact in communities changing lives one at a time. The curriculums we use teach life skills, build self esteem and prepare students for higher education.
