Saying Goodbye to Ms. Sherri, Director of Empower Children’s Academy

On April 5, we said goodbye to Director of Empower Children’s Academy Sherri Kaminski who retired after thirty-nine years with the agency. Sherri is a fun and positive person who is always striving to improve herself and Empower’s educational programming. Under her leadership, Empower expanded its enrollment to include typically developing children and added before- and after-school care to help working families. Ms. Sherri helped thousands of children to live their best lives, and we thank her for her service and inspiration.

Thanks to support from the Elks Lockport Lodge #41, Children’s Academy students were treated to some fun jazzy music, including Hokey Pokey and Mickey Mouse Fun House. Some just listened while others danced their cares away.
