Brad Hembree, site coordinator at the Summit Pointe Elementary Kids Country program, was recently named the Missouri Afterschool Staffer of the Month for July 2016. He has worked for Kids Country for 11 years.
Mr. Hembree’s duties include overseeing the program at his school, supervising other staff members, planning and leading activities.
As part of the award, he was featured in the organization’s online publication. He shared that he especially likes his job because he has the opportunity to see the students mature throughout their years in Kids Country. “To see them grow and change with each year” is one of his job’s highlights, Mr. Hembree said, adding that he also enjoys watching children become more confident as they grow.
