ELAINE ARMOUR WORD

POSITION ON GYO BOARD

VICE PRESIDENT

 

I am Rev. Dr. Elaine Word.  I am a retired elementary school teacher and administrator.  I am finally retired!  In the past I taught teachers how to teach and administrators how to administer.  I am also a world traveler.  My husband and I make sure we take at least one  (maybe more)  significant trip every year.  He documents our travels with slide shows and we use them to share with our students.  He is also a University Professor with students who enjoy our travels.  To see the world beyond the place where one was born is something I want for the children in the Gifford Youth Orchestra -- otherwise they won't know there are real mountains, real snow, or real places where the sun never sets.  

 

I am Vice President of the Gifford Florida Youth Orchestra Board of Directors and a very long time friend of Rev. Dr. Crystal Bujol, who ordained me twenty years ago.  I serve in this position because I want to see these young people from Gifford, and other neighboring communities have the gift of success in their lives, right now ... not just in the future, but right  now!

MAMIE REGINA EDMOND

MEMBER OF THE GYO BOARD OF DIRECTORS

 

 

About Regina Edmond:  I joined this board because Crystal asked
me to.  I have a dream for the orchestra, that the children become well rounded, culturally, and proficient in more than one genre of music.  I dream that they will get to travel and see more of the world than Gifford, Florida.  I dream that they will be confident in performance skills and able to step up without fear in all their experiences in life.
 
I am a cosmetologist and my clients come from all walks of life and from all parts of Indian River County. At my shop,  I have met people from many cities in America and many countries in the world.  I started cutting hair at age 8 and have been financially blessed since then.  I took over the administration of the shop at age 18 and have been a business woman all my life.  I want the same or more for my children, so I taught them all to cut hair at around 9 or 10.  That's why I like the idea of the GYO giving a stipend to children .... as tutors.  Teach them how to manage their finances as early as possible -- that's my motto.
 
My personal dream is to establish The Green Pointe Group Home for
disabled adults.  I have always wanted to create a safe space for people with disabilities or down syndrome.  Most of the women in my family are in the nursing field, so it is not  unusual that I would want to take this particular path of service and healing.  Likewise, I serve on the Gifford Florida Youth Orchestra to offer my service to help create a safe space for these children.
