Woodland Hall Academy (WHA) opened in 1975 in Tallahassee, Florida, as a full-time (1st - 12th grade) school designed to remediate and prevent the learning and behavior problems associated with the dyslexic and ADD/ADHD student. Woodland Hall is operated by the Dyslexia Research Institute, Inc. (DRI), a non-profit corporation.
The primary goal of Woodland Hall Academy is the remediation or "re-teaching
and catching up" of students so that they may return to regular
classroom situations, able to work successfully at their own potential
or I.Q. levels. Another goal is to teach social values and appropriate
behaviors so that the students will have happy and healthy relationships
with other children and develop proper social orientation for adulthood.
In short, Woodland Hall Academy's goal is to give the individual the
necessary tools to adapt and adjust to the demands of society without
undue stress or loss of self-esteem. (Woodland Hall
Academy does this in a medication-free environment. No student at WHA
is on Ritalin, or medication to control their ADD.) Learn more

The Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF) began in 1980 as the Col. Arthur D. "Bull" Simons Scholarship Fund. The Bull Simons Fund was created after the Iranian hostage rescue attempt to provide college educations for the 17 children surviving the nine men killed or incapacitated at Desert One. It was named in honor of the legendary Army Green Beret Bull Simons, who repeatedly risked his life on rescue missions.
