Business Spotlight: KWLA teaches the whole child

Knowledge Works Learning Academy (KWLA) is an educational nonprofit (501c3) that offers free after school tutoring and affordable after school childcare for K-12 students in the Chattahoochee Valley area.

“We’re a homework hub where parents can bring their children for assistance,” owner and Director Kai Gary said. “All students are welcome.”

But KWLA is about more than just helping students complete homework assignments. The academy also helps students with remedial learning, study and testing skills, real-world problem-solving, and improving interpersonal communication skills.

The Isaiah Hughley Award Of Academic Excellence

Isaiah Hugley Honored by Mayor Lowe & KWLA

As instruments of education, KWLA is constantly seeking new and innovative ways to inspire our youth to work hard academically.

On February 25th, as a part of our Motivational Monday for Black History Month, we celebrated the life and accomplishments of Columbus, Georgia City Manager Isaiah Hugley.

We believe one of the best ways to motivate children is to bring them face-to-face with living legends. Because Isaiah Hugley grew up in the L P Stough community we wanted to emphasize, “its not where you come from, but where you are going.”

The Honorable Mayor Lowe and City Manager Hugley are real examples of African American men who excelled against the odds and KWLA was honored to have both men in the house, at the same time, to inspire the youth in our program.

Mayor Lowe of Phenix City, Alabama presented Isaiah Hugley with a proclamation on behalf of the city. KWLA also presented the students in our program with the first award named in honor of Isaiah Hugley – The Isaiah Hughley Award Of Academic Excellence.
