Wings

She Has Wings
One of the most recited stanzas in our WINGS creed reads, “Life’s full of surprises that make me feel different ways. If I can control myself, I will have much better days.” How to react to life’s surprises allows for many teachable moments with our kids. And even outside of WINGS, our staff will admit to pulling this line out when we need to keep things in check.

This month’s He has WINGS recipient, College of Charleston senior Jordan Thomas, serves as the ultimate teachable moment for us all—illustrating how an individual can face a life-defining surprise and even in the midst of their own struggles can use the new hand they have been dealt to show compassion for others.

Destiny Singleton entered WINGS as a second grader at Memminger Elementary, marking this year her fifth and final year with our program before she’s off to soar to even greater heights.

We consider Destiny one of our WINGS success stories, and it’s in watching Destiny live out the creed and strengthen in her own self-awareness that keeps us charging ahead at WINGS—so we can ultimately equip as many kids as possible with the opportunity to grow in the same fashion.

Learn why she's so great.
