Twenty-five young girls attended their first "Cookies & Milk" meeting, Monday afternoon.

"The Cookies and Milk Project" whose name is a representation for the simple, happy times in childrens' lives, is a mentoring program that focuses on developing the confidence and leadership skills of young girls in our area.

Debra Holt and Teresa Williams are the founders of this project. Teresa's daughter passed away tragically, and she wanted to do something to remember her daughter, and make a difference in the lives of young girls.

Representative Joetta Polk explains..

"We want to create an environment and atmosphere where they feel they can trust us. Children are sponges; they soak up everything..and what we give to them, we want it to be positive. We believe that "The Cookies and Milk Project" is really going to make a difference in their lives"

The group will meet twice a month and cover topics from self-worth to academics, and anything else the girls want to talk about. It's free to join and open to girls between the ages of 5 and 18.
