“It has been absolutely wonderful to have SwingPals at James E. Shepard IB Magnet Middle School this year.  From the first class through the graduation ceremony, the students know they are cared for and valued. Students leave the SwingPals sessions excited and eager to share what they have learned. The SwingPals program has enhanced our student’s school experience and because of SwingPals they feel comfortable trying new things and know that with practice they can become successful.” - Micah Copeland, Principal, Shepard Middle School
