At a brief ceremony on Aug. 21, Fort Irwin’s School Age Services Center celebrated its new education partnership with the 2916th Aviation Battalion. The 2916th will help students with special classes and demonstrations on various academic and vocational topics, according to the battalion commander, Lt. Col. Fernando Guadalupe.

“I’m really impressed with the staff here, how professional they are and how they care for our children,” Guadalupe said.

The center’s mission is to promote quality of life by supporting Army readiness, said Sheryl Black, the outgoing center director. She said the center provides affordable before-school and after-school care, and offers special camps during the winter and spring breaks, and a full day camp during the summer. The center also sponsors a Boys and Girls Club and 4-H Club program.

“We are excited and motivated, and looking forward for a great working relationship,” said Black.

Black noted that she’ll be moving to Fort Bragg and the center’s new director will be Andrea Wooley.
