Scheidel Spotlight: Kamryn

In 2003, Tamera Robinson partnered with Beaches Habitat for Humanity to build and buy a home for herself and her one-year-old daughter, Kamryn, in Atlantic Beach. The house is not far from Donner Park and when Kamryn started elementary school, she also started attending the afterschool program at the community center in the park, now called the Gail Baker Center.

As Kamryn grew older, she continued to participate in programs at the Baker Center, including Prep Club, an incentive program for children of Beaches Habitat homeowners. She also went on to volunteer at the Baker Center, helping younger students in the afterschool program. In 2019, Kamryn and a classmate were the first recreation interns for the City of Atlantic Beach.

This spring, Kamyrn graduated from Fletcher High School with a 3.37 GPA! She applied for, and has been accepted to, the University of North Florida. Thanks to Kamryn’s hard work and Beaches Habitat’s partnership with the Scheidel Foundation, Kamryn will be attending the university on a full scholarship, which includes a laptop and printer!

We are so excited for Kamyrn as she pursues her degree in Nursing and wish her the best of luck!

If you would like to be part of a success story like Kamryn’s, considering becoming a mentor. A commitment of one hour per week can make a big difference in the life of a student.
