F3 is launching a Soccer & Literacy campaign to support our after-school and summer program in the Hilltop community at Eakin Elementary. The program is led by our new Director of Education, Leiah Groom-Thomas.
The program is designed to foster a love for reading, generate enthusiasm about the sport of soccer, and develop an understanding of the importance of teamwork and leadership.
"We are very excited about the F3 program, and even more excited to add Leiah Groom-Thomas to our team. Leiah brings the quality needed to allow this program to become what we originally envisaged - a world-class soccer and education program that maximizes each child's time with us," says Ben Levey, Executive Director of F3.
Leiah is in the final stages of receiving her PhD in Reading and Literacy in Early and Middle Childhood from The Ohio State University. Her research expertise includes young children's literacy and comprehension skill development. Prior to pursuing her PhD, Leiah was a teacher at Grace Christian School in Blacklick, Ohio where she also assisted in organizing and operating various camps.
