Meet Kaiden and Terry
Ten-year-old Kaiden started coming to academic enrichment to stay ahead of the game. He happened to develop a pretty special relationship with Coach Terry, co-founder of iPlay, iLead. Coach Terry and Kaiden not only spent time on academics, but also on getting to know each other better. Coach Terry has this to say about Kaiden: “He is a very special young man. He has so much potential and it’s so awesome to witness him coming out of his shell and continuing to evolve. He continues to make us all proud.” Kaiden feels the same about Coach Terry and is thankful to have him and all the great mentors in his life.
