MOUNT VERNON — Pair Kenyon College students with gifted elementary pupils and the results are amazing. On Tuesday, first- and second-graders from around the county and their Kenyon mentors shared the results of their collaboration during the Kenyon Mentorship Tea.
Mentor Mira Netsky helped Danville first-grader Kadence Mickley create a picture book about animals who lived on, and escaped from, a farm.
East Knox second-graders Luke Schlosser and Kieran Karlovetz, with mentor Haley Shipley, recruited members of the audience to help demonstrate the math board game they developed.
Kieran’s father, Philip Karlovetz, thinks the Kenyon mentor program is valuable.
“It gives the children a chance to learn above and beyond the classroom,” he said. “The interaction with the college students is a good experience for them, too.”
