Junior Student 2 Student® (JS2Sâ„¢) Alumni
Furthers Professional Development
with MCEC Programs

If you ever wondered about MCEC programs, just ask 21 year-old JS2S alumni, Tanny Ogungby. As a child, Tanny participated in the Junior Student 2 Student program at Palo Alto Middle School in Killeen, Texas. As an adult and employee of the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, Tanny continues to expand her knowledge of military and veteran-connected kids through MCEC professional development programs.

Tanny grew up as a military child with both her mother and stepfather serving in the Army. Attending almost 15 schools by the 5th grade, Tanny was well aware of what it felt like to be the new kid. When she arrived at Palo Alto, she was so grateful to the students in the JS2S program for making her feel welcome, she knew she wanted to join. Her biggest takeaway from JS2S was being able to be a friend to a stranger.

“At the Boys and Girls Club there are so many military kids and I want to learn how to better support them. Being a military kid and truly understanding how to cater to one, is completely different. I cater to middle school students who go through some of the most drastic changes. I want to help them understand what they’re going through and prepare them for the future,” said Tanny Ogungby, who participated in the Supporting Military Children through School Transitions professional development course. MCEC is glad to be a part of the lives of motivated individuals at all ages!

  Another Great
Month of the Military Child Event

Congratulations to Ft. Walton Beach, FL who
received $400 from Wal-Mart for preparing kids for deployment.
On May 2, 2015 they teamed up with Hurlburt Field in Okaloosa County, FL
to work the KUDOS program where they allowed children
go through a mock deployment. Children were also able to
get their faces painted in camo!

Your dedication and effort is very much appreciated!
