Lakeway Activity Center claims a third award by Learning Resources Network (LERN)

The Lakeway Activity Center constantly channels its chakra into developing innovative programming such as Yoga for Geeks.
This energy recently earned the center its third Excellence in Programming award from the Learning Resources Network, an international association in lifelong learning.
Activity Center Manager and Programs Coordinator, Dallas Gorman accepted this year’s award on behalf of the City of Lakeway, Parks and Recreation Department and Yoga for Geeks instructor Rena Smith.
This was the third time LERN recognized the center due to the center’s commitment to add original community programs into their schedule.
“It is a tremendous honor to receive our third LERN award,” said Andra Dearing, Lakeway Parks and Recreation director. “Dallas and Rena’s excellent partnership is just one example of the work we do to provide the community with fresh, engaging programming.”
“Yoga for Geeks” has been designed for people who spend endless hours in front of the computer screen doing homework, studying for tests, working from home or at the office, researching information on the web and more. Prolonged activities of this type can cause muscle strain in the shoulders, back, neck, arms, wrists and hands plus can clutter the mind.
“Yoga for Geeks” customizes a yoga routine which can be done during these long periods of time to help relieve stress and strain and relax the brain. 

 LERN’s primary criterion in selecting exemplary programs was the quality of being at the leading edge of the field of lifelong learning. The association considered originality, innovation, appropriateness and adaptability as a model for other programs, replicability and measurable outcomes.

Lakeway Activity Center Recognized a second time by Learning Resources Network (LERN)

 The Lakeway Activity Center has been honored two years in a row for Excellence in Programming by the Learning Resources Network (LERN), an international association in lifelong learning.  Programs Coordinator, Dallas Gorman accepted this year’s award on behalf of the City of Lakeway, Parks and Recreation Department and Instructors Suzanne King and Deb Griffith. 

This year’s program was awarded specifically for the Center’s ability to listen to what people want and continually add new and innovative programs.  This resulted in record breaking revenue in youth classes.  The “Make and Mail” holiday card class was one such program recognized.  In this class, students create two holiday paintings suitable for framing and one is chosen to be printed as holiday cards.  In addition to the picture and the cards, parents received a disk formatted with the design to print additional cards. Instructors Suzanne King and Deb Griffin kept the class interesting with holiday themed activities (decorating sugar cookies, gift exchange games and pin the nose on Rudolph). This class was so popular; when parents requested additional classes, the Activity Center was able to schedule accordingly and allow more kids to participate.  Several kids returned for each class as a different theme was used in each session. 

The following criteria are considered:  originality, innovation, appropriateness and adaptability as a model for other programs, replicability and measurable outcomes, Julie Coates, Vice President of Information Services for LERN, said this year’s award nominees were among the highest quality ever submitted.
