It’s amazing as we plan our 6th Annual Learning Fair on 4/26 that it was back in 2014 on our Timeline of Progress that Project Genesis coordinated their First Annual Learning Fair which was an opportunity for students in the SESS program to showcase what they have learned throughout the year. Everyone loved showing off their successes and we couldn’t have been prouder!

From the JANUARY 2019 Project Genesis’s Survivor Newsletter.
Survivor Story of the Month: Robert Watson lll
“My name is Robert Watson III, I suffered a severe ABI in 2009 and was also told that I probably would never be able to walk or be independent. In 2010 I became a survivor in the P.G. Program since that time I have learned to walk, and I presently live alone. I have my own ILST and I do get some PCA care, but I am independent in the broader sense. This just goes to show that only you can determine your future! I appreciate P.G. for its support and encouragement. I am also proud to be the editor of our P.G. Newsletter. I am a gym member and will hope to be an encouragement to someone!”
I AM A SURVIVOR
You absolutely are Robert! And thank you for sharing your talents as the editor of the Survivor Newsletter. ... See MoreSee Less
