EarlyAct FirstKnight Program

The program is incorporated into middle school curriculum to make learning fun about “excellent personal character, social skills and service orientation”.  A knighting ceremony, complete with knights in shining armor, concludes the program with students earning accolades for trustworthiness, helpfulness and other character traits. KCS hosts one location with many more requested! Help us expand the program by running in our 5K. For more information about EAFK, proceed to the website.
