" The Power Hitte® program served approximately 100 children from the second to fifth grades levels over a five week period from 8:30 to 3:00 p.m. daily. The program's mark of distinction was that it successfully blended both academic and recreational summer programming thus enabling students to receive the best of both worlds. Enrichment and remedial support were offered through highly motivating and integrated theme based activities which included replicating the dimensions of a baseball park to scale, taking a trip to a baseball game and examining the economics of that field trip, designing baseball /cards and writing letters to teams across the country. Dr. Veltri is to be commended not only for the creativity of the curriculum that she has designed, but for her unwavering commitment to supporting the growth and learning of new teachers and children of diverse backgrounds." Dr. Eileen Santiago, Principal, Thomas A. Edison School, Port Chester, NY.

We are fortunate to have these opportunities to make that difference in someone's life." Pat Murphy, Head Coach, Arizona State University Sun Devil Baseball.
