Some of Our Success Stories

Karl OppenheimerIn third grade, a psychologist informed my parents that I was unteachable. They recommend that I should be put away in an institution because I'll just become a menace to society. My mother was furious that they could say something that direct. She started fighting to make sure I would get the appropriate services I needed to succeed.

August HuntI grew up in Paris Texas in a small town where everyone knows everyone. The public school system was not as easy for me as it was for my brother and sister. When I was in 4th grade, my reading and spelling comprehension was below kindergarten level. As I was getting ready to go into the fifth grade, it became clear that the school was not able to accommodate my needs.
The Children with Dyslexia Scholarship Fund was a great investment in my success and gave me the confidence I needed to succeed in school and life. I’m happy to hear this continues to be the case for current recipients and I encourage anyone reading this to get involved or continue their involvement.Tim Hollinger – Scholarship Recipient 2016
It’s been a pleasure working with the Children with Dyslexia Scholarship Fund. The fund not only provides financial assistance and resources to children and families that need it, but also provides a strong community for the scholarship fund participants. I’m excited for the momentum to continue and remain a thriving resource to those in need.Karl Oppenheimer – Dean of Student Life, Kildonan School
The Children with Dyslexia Scholarship Fund was there to support me and my dreams. By not having to worry about the financial burden of paying for school, I was able to focus on my passion, art. The fund provided me with a strong foundation to succeed in school, go to college and pursue a degree in art. Today, I am fulfilling my passion by creating art installations, working for Saks Fifth Avenue and building sets for Broadway shows.August Hunt – Scholarship Recipient 2008
