Fort Edward, NY (WRGB) — Students in the Fort Edward School District were treated with a special presentation Thursday by one ‘lucky’ alum.
Eileen Doyon from Upstate New York, Fort Edward originally, published her first children’s book in 2021 and recently released book number two!
The ‘Lucky’ series is based on a true story about, Lewiston, Maine resident Christy Gardner, an Army Veteran and double amputee, with a special little puppy named Lucky.
As an alum, Doyon returned to Fort Edward school this week to read to the students as part of their Positivity Project (P2).
P2 is an organization which aims to empower students to build positive relationships and become their best selves, using Positive psychology’s 24 character strengths serve as its foundation.
Ranging from bravery and perseverance to integrity and gratitude, the character strengths are classified and described in the 800-page book Character Strengths and Virtues. These strengths aren’t about ignoring the negative. Instead, they help us overcome life’s inevitable adversities. P2 partners with Pre-K–12 schools and equips educators with the resources, training, and strategy to teach their students about character strengths and positive relationships.
