Out of all 7 Salvation Army Kroc Centers in the Southern Territory, we are thrilled to announce that our own Angelia Grandberry is the August KROC STAR!!!!!
A Shout Out for a Job Well Done!
Angelia Grandberry has been with The Salvation Army Kroc Center on the Mississippi Gulf Coast since opening in September 2011. Angelia has created many programs over the years that children in the community have enjoyed. This summer marks the 4th Summer Day Camp. Since starting the camp, Angelia has grown it from 20 kids per day to 148 kids per day with over 225 registered. Because of the type of program she created and runs, MS Gulf Coast Kroc Center’s reputation for excellence in child care is known throughout the gulf coast and almost zero marketing for Summer Day Camp is needed. People come based on word of mouth to all of the child care programs whether it be After School Care, Parent’s Time Out, or Play Care. Angelia has a heart for children and it shows in her work every single day! MS Gulf Coast Kroc Center feels blessed to have her on staff.
