Last Fall, as part of „Principal for a Day“ program sponsored by the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, Bob Littell volunteered. He was assigned to Whitefoord Elementary School – an all-black school in South Atlanta.

With the Principal’s permission and support, Littell gave a short talk to an assembly of 3rd graders and explained the NetWeaving and Pay It Forward concepts. Then he put the kids through some exercises so they would really understand that’s it’s just all about introducing their friends to each other, and then they have to do the same and introduce their friends to someone else, and so on and so on.

The talk and exercises went over so well that Donna Lowry, the emcee of the program and the news – education anchor – for WXIA, the NBC affiliate in Atlanta, said she wanted to go back to the school and film it. She did this several weeks ago and it was just aired April 24, 2007. .Here is the link to be able to view a brief summary of the talk and the exercise.

NetWeaving and Pay It Forward work for ALL the ages.
