Talley Management Group (TMG)’s mission is to create stronger communities and human connections to enhance global society, this focus is more specific toward associations and societies, but the company is taking this charter one step further by creating international bridges connecting students in the United States with those overseas in Kenya. Prior to a recent trip to Africa, TMG’s President and CEO Gregg Talley tasked his employees with locating an area school district who would be interested in partnering with the Moi Avenue Primary School in Kenya. The Washington Township Orchard Valley Middle School’s 6th grade reading class, taught by Madeline La Voe and Kelly Walz, eagerly agreed to participate after a failed attempt on their own to create a global partnership with a school in Canada. Talley’s connection to the Moi Avenue Primary School allowed for an ease of partnership between the two schools. After numerous email exchanges, it was agreed that students at both schools would write pen pal letters and collect various items of interest for each class. Talley also encouraged his employees to get involved by donating art supplies for the school in Africa.
One of TMG's Core Values is "Creating Stronger Communities and Human Connections to Enhance Global Society." In keeping up with that Core Value TMG recently had a chance to give back by collecting school supplies to be donated to the Moi Avenue Primary School in Kenya. Included in the donations were art supplies and laptop computers that will go a long way for the Nairobi, Kenya located school. In addition TMG is helping to connect Moi Avenue with a local school to serve as "pen pals."
