Brad Cummings Jr. won the “I Am Third” award, nominated by the counselors and staff to honor one person who exemplifies God first, community second and themselves third.
Tracy: Brad Cumming’s son, Brad, from Greater Shiloh won the “I Am Third” award. Only one awarded per age group. Brad has been going to KAA for four years. His favorite thing about camp is playing on the tubes. Brad’s little sister, Kindal, has been going for two years and her favorite thing is arts and crafts. Laqueshia Wilson from Ebenezer went to KAA growing up and this year was able to take her son, so it has come full circle.
This year KAA is under the amazing leadership of Dr. Rene Rochester and Roy Campbell. Dr. Rochester lives in Franklin and is the CEO of PhatStar Learning. She teaches at a local elementary school and is a adjunct professor at Fuller Seminary. Rochester has also written three books. She is founder of the Kaleo program at KAA. Roy “Soup” Campbell lives in Memphis and is the Executive Director at Eikon Ministries. Roy and his wife Linda serve as the Higher Ground Directors at KAA. I feel so proud and honored to be a part of this life-changing experience for all these kids and adults from our communities.
