In childhood, parents and educators teach conformity – to give boundaries, to define rules of society, to strengthen the moral and ethical compass, and to broaden an individual’s understanding of the world. With this foundation, you begin to find your uniqueness and build upon special skills that set you apart from others – skills that make you a leader. Mary Ann Wood, director of public affairs support, and Stephanie Smith, senior director of donor relations and special events, talk about the Missouri Public Affairs Hall of Fame and this year’s honorees.

What are your kids doing this summer? Maxine Clark of the Clark-Fox Family Foundation and founder of Build-A-Bear says blueprint4summer.com not only helps parents find great opportunities, but it helps the camps as well. “We’ve tried to help camps look where there are so many people that are inquiring and give them that feedback so they can relocate their camps from last year to this year to places where there was a parent who put in their zip code but there was no camp within ten miles,” she says.
Build-A-Bear Workshop founder Maxine Clark is broadening her website devoted to connecting local children to summer activities with the addition of a college prep database that features programs from universities around the country. Blueprint4Summer College Prep launched in January and has about 1,700 summer programs that feature STEM, test prep and arts, among other subjects. The college prep programs are open to all U.S. students, not just those in St. Louis.
