AIM, a Monroe High School program that pairs struggling students with adult mentors, has received a $1,000 donation from Toledo-based CEO Jeff Cooley.
MONROE, MI / ACCESSWIRE / June 25, 2020 / Allies in Monroe (AIM), an extension of the Monroe Public High Schools, has received a generous donation from the CEO of MLMC, Jeff Cooley. Donations like his allow AIM, which is a program that creates suitable matches between students and adult mentors, to focus on helping all of their participants succeed academically. The mentor and allies of AIM monitor their appointed students' attendance and grades with the intention of helping them improve their overall averages by 15% within the school year.
Established business owner Jeff Cooley began his career in education before shifting gears, a reality that has allowed him to recognize the noble pursuits of teaching. Jointly, before relocating to Ohio, Cooley spent time working and living in Monroe County and inherently appreciates the value of supporting a community that he has grown to love.
With 6 years of results, AIM has proved to be a successful scholastic incentive that has enhanced its students' GPA's, increased the number of students enrolling in continued education, and provided the township with more motivated and academically-inclined members of the workforce.
The Monroe Public Schools system and AIM are both funded by an independent board, outside of national controls, and therefore rely heavily on community financial support from businesses, foundations, and individuals. AIM is open to all Monroe High School students, however the number of students that are able to be accepted into the program each trimester is dependent upon the amount of money that is raised.
If you are able to donate, and thereby provide students the opportunity to advance themselves through AIM, please contact Monroe High School teacher David Henry at 734-265-3400.
