Much of the Opening program was interactive as the focus was on the students, who took to the stage by class and introduced themselves to the audience. Part of that exercise Saturday went to the heart of what Project ENRICH does -- it helps students gain confidence in themselves and learn to communicate more forthrightly by "speaking up" and thinking on their feet. Human resources experts have identified communication skills as among the most critical for success in the workplace. Parents were also introduced to Project ENRICH instructors for 2013-14: brothers Lucien Cox (freshmen), Reginald Thomas(sophomores), Marc Ellington (juniors) and Don Norwood (seniors).

Gaywood's principal, Brother Damien Goins, has been named Educator of the Year for Gamma Pi and will be honored at the chapter's Achievement Week program on November 23.
The portion of the program featuring the students was broadcast live on Gamma Pi's Ustream channel and is available for viewing. Below is a clip from Brother Hines after Saturday's Opening Program. Additional photos can be found by visiting the Project ENRICH Facebook page.
