WELCOME STARSHINE FAY LANDRUM ACADEMY
It’s our first week of school, and as always, there is so much happening here at StarShine. We’re kicking off this year by introducing our newest school, StarShine Fay Landrum Academy! Arizona State Senator, Leah Landrum Taylor wanted to open a school in honor of her grandmother Fay Landrum, who was not allowed to attend school past the sixth grade, but through many hurdles her grandmother managed to graduate from ASU with honors at age 66. StarShine is so fortunate to have had the opportunity to play a part in helping Senator Landrum Taylor turn her vision into reality. Congratulations!
Please come over to see the campus as soon as you can!

INTERNATIONAL YEAR OF YOUTH
In Dec. 2009, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution to proclaim a year to signify the importance the international community places on integrating youth -related issues into global, regional and local development agendas. Under the theme Dialogue and Mutual Understanding the year will aim to promote the ideals of peace, respect for human rights and solidarity across generations, cultures, religions and civilizations.
“Youth deserve our full commitment–full access to education, adequate healthcare, employment opportunities, financial services and full participation in public life.” United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
StarShine Academy was recognized for its efforts in “our exemplary work with youth” at the opening ceremony August 12, 2010 with CEO and President, Trish McCarty and Vice President, Jan Shoop.
We are so excited in opening up an additional school as well as receiving international recognition! What a great way to kick off our new school year!
