A milestone for little ones at Palm Harbor Academy


Jeroline McCarthyVoluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) students and other kindergarteners from a school were attuned to celebrating the first milestone of student achievement. The kids were part of a recent graduation at Palm Harbor Academy. Parents were joined by other guests also wishing the best for the students.

Student achievement expressed the commencement speech of Joy Blake, the kindergarten teacher. Mrs. Blake thanked the parents and guardians for making sacrifices and the kids for their preparedness to “believe and achieve.” The kids read 30 books during the year.

The kids had their pictures taken and were honored by local vocalist Kayon Jones singing “The Greatest Love of All.’’ Later, an ice cream social was enjoyed.

The academy is open during the summer for a free VPK program. Palm Harbor Academy is located at 95 Old Kings Road North, Palm Coast. It can be reached at 386-447-9692, or log on at www.palmharboracademy.net.

Supporting cancer patients
Cynthia Black has been making her dream real. She recently presented four gift certificates in free cancer screening to co-founder Faith Coleman of the Flagler Free Clinic. The certificates were the compliments of Radiology Associates Imaging Centers. Black also donated 80 percent of money raised from her “Phenomenal Woman” fashion show to fund free cancer treatment at Halifax Hospital.

Black, a former professional model, highlighted her flair to support cancer treatment. It was fulfilling bringing awareness to cancer survivors as models to showcase the Vince Carter restaurant.

Black’s mom is a 30-year colorectal cancer survivor, and her dad succumbed to prostate cancer that had metastasized to the lung and brain. Despite enjoying a 35-year modeling career, Black is troubled by being uninsured, but connects the uninsured cancer patients with treatment.

She will hop on the mic for another show to fund cancer treatment. It will take place Nov. 9, 11:30 a.m., at the Hilton Garden Inn, and vendors are welcome to set up shop. Black can be reached at 386-546 1817.


As always, remember our prayers for the sick, afflicted and bereaved.
