On January 23, 2014, Porges, Hamlin, Knowles & Hawk, P.A. was proud to co-sponsor the Manatee Community Foundation’s Legacy Society Luncheon with CS&L CPAs. Jason DePaola, who is active with Manatee Community Foundation and holds a seat on the Legacy Society Committee, shared a few words at the opening of the luncheon. The mission of the foundation is to connect the charitable interests of their donors with the ongoing needs of the community.
Also speaking was Neil Phillips on behalf of Visable Men Academy (VMA), a highly successful educational program design to meet the needs of Southwest Florida’s at-risk population. The mission VMA is to provide boys with outstanding academic, character, and social education in a nurturing school environment. Neil shared the five (5) essential components that drive the VMA school model: (1) Single-gender (all boys); (2) Extended day and year; (3) Visible Men Success Curriculum; (4) Data-Driven Instructional Environment; and (5) An Administration & Faculty deeply connected to unique VMA mission.
