July Podcast Live! and Grit Camp Week 4 update
Our July Grit.org Podcast episode with Dr. Saman Soleymani is now live! Check out the episode below. If you missed his preview, then check it out here. We explore his journey immigrating from Iran, being a college student at 15, becoming a doctor, and now running one of the largest medical clinics in Jacksonville.
We had another amazing week at Grit Camp with 13 counselors and 40 campers for our fourth week at Jacksonville University. We enjoyed the Florida weather, played plenty of sports and activities, completed the Grit Combine, were inspired by the movie 'McFarland USA', and heard from college track and cross country star and current coach Stacy Brunell.
We are off camp this week to celebrate the 4th and give our hard working counselors some time off. I hope everyone enjoys the holiday and stay tuned for more exciting updates from this summer!
