VALDOSTA -- Destini Hardy, 9, said goodbye to the folks with Valdosta State University's School-College Outreach Program of Enrichment (SCOPE) Saturday, its final day this year.

"I have had a really good time," said the Lomax-Pinevale Elementary School third-grader. "I hope I get to come back next year."

This was Hardy's first time participating in the six-week program, designed in the early 1980s to give students in grades one through eight an introduction to new areas of interest and information and help them explore new activities and develop their own talents and abilities.

Hardy discovered the wonderful worlds of computers and African dance and drumming.

"Some of the dances I learned were really fun," she said with a smile.

Katie Overman, 7, spent her Saturdays learning about the art of sculpture and jewelry making and African dance and drumming.
