Victoria Ranger and Angela Brown “Life Work Leadership Compassion Tour 2016”

Compassion Tour – Victoria Ranger and Angela Brown presented to the Life Work Leadership class of 2016.

Ranger Technical Resources and Dillard Elementary School were selected by the City of Ft. Lauderdale’s City Manager Lee Feldman as the City’s choice to be used as an influential Case Study within their Compassion Tour for the Lifework Leadership of South Florida.  On January 8, 2016 Ms. Ranger and Ms. Brown presented the Ranger Good Works program to over 122 business leaders and city officials describing how the partnership between the public and private sector has made a positive change by altering the direction of the school.  Dillard Elementary is a Broward County Public School, part of the largest school district in the United States.

District 5 School Board Member Dr. Rosalind Osgood shared with the attendees the fact that Ms. Brown had received the Prestigious Caliber Award as “Principal of the Year” for Broward County in April 2015.  Ms. Brown acknowledged Ms. Ranger’s contribution and together they received a standing ovation for their work in the community.

“The Compassion Tour was intended to engage people’s hearts, provide them with a window to become aware of actual needs within the community and inspire them to become involved!”  Amanda Forman, Program Director said “our mission was accomplished, the Ranger-Dillard story and what the team is doing is truly inspiring.”

Ms. Ranger and Ms. Brown’s shared goals are to raise awareness of the “reality of life” for a number of school children in Fort Lauderdale. They continue to encourage those within the community to realize that any act of kindness by one individual to another, especially to children, can make a difference in the world of a child.  They asked those in attendance to be generous and have the courage to lead others by helping any school with their students. There is great opportunity throughout the city of Ft. Lauderdale and everywhere in the United States to provide students with a better educational experience.

Our words of the day…..Compassion, Love and Give… To be continued!

Hour of Code presented by Ranger Technical Resources & Ranger Good Works was a great success!

Hour of Code – December 2015

Ranger Good Works had a fan-tas-tech team show up to support us for the Computer Science Education Week and CODE.ORG Hour of Code initiative held at Dillard Elementary. 36 Volunteers walked out of the session proudly wearing a ‪#‎BrowardCodes‬ – I coded did you? sticker.
Without a doubt every helping hand left their assigned classrooms with a smile on their face knowing they made a big impact on our community’s children of Fort Lauderdale. Learning to code and be more informed about Computer Science is critical to our youth. In today’s world everything runs on software. The next generation will be faced with their world being focused even more on-line and digital than today. What we taught at Dillard Elementary was not only coding. Some lessons included computational thinking.  (Mathematics, logic and algorithms) The instructors focused the children on problem solving in small thought out pieces to eventually solve the bigger problem.)  The interaction with the volunteers during this initiative gave the students encouragement that they could do anything if they put their minds to it. Coding and Computational thinking are used in many different careers today.  We are proud to have been able to provide this opportunity to our chosen elementary school in the sixth largest school district in the United States.
