Southwest Citizen Honored<br />

Helping Teen Dads Be Better Fathers<br />

by Debra Wood<br />

After 11 years at the helm of<br />

Young Fathers of Central<br />

Florida, Haki Nkrumah of<br />

Winter Garden was named<br />

Orange County District 1 Citizen<br />

of the Year by Commissioner<br />

Betsy VanderLey.<br />

“I thought it was a fantastic<br />

idea [to name him],” said<br />

Commissioner VanderLey, who<br />

has known Haki for the past<br />

10 years. “It’s my recognizing<br />

the impact he has made and<br />

what one person can do in the<br />

community, having a vision and<br />

putting work behind it.”<br />

The commissioner explained<br />

that other states often have programs<br />

for teen dads, but not<br />

Florida. Yet, society wants to<br />

hold the young men to high standards of<br />

supporting their families and being good<br />

fathers. Haki stepped up to fill the void in<br />

Orange County.<br />

“It’s good recognition,” Haki said. “We<br />

provide supportive services for teens and<br />

young fathers.”<br />

Young Fathers of Central Florida, a nonprofit<br />

organization, aims to improve teen<br />

fathers’ participation in their children’s<br />

lives. The organization serves young men,<br />

ages 14 to 24, and offers dad-to-dad mentoring,<br />

parenting classes, support groups<br />

and a prevention program for boys ages<br />

10 to 13. Annually, the organization plays<br />

host to a national conference to share<br />

best practices and new ideas to help teen<br />

fathers.<br />

Haki often finds that young men do not<br />

have a father figure in their lives. The mentoring<br />

program helps them learn how to be<br />

responsible and help to raise their children.<br />

Commissioner VanderLey served on the<br />

Young Fathers board years prior to her<br />

becoming a county commissioner and has<br />

“kept it on her radar.”<br />

“She knows the work going into it and<br />

how difficult it is to raise funds,” Haki said.<br />

“Betsy has been there supporting us.”<br />

Most of Haki and his organization’s work<br />

is in Orange County. He reaches out to<br />

District 1 Commissioner Betsy VanderLey (left)<br />

and Community Action Manager Lavon Williams<br />

(right) congratulate Winter Garden resident Haki<br />

Nkrumah for being named Orange County District 1<br />

Citizen of the Year.<br />

young men at community centers throughout<br />

Orlando and Orange County. He receives<br />

funding from both the county and<br />

the city for his summer prevention program,<br />

and some businesses sponsor specific programs.<br />

The organization still is in need of<br />

money and volunteers.<br />

Haki also speaks nationally on the<br />

topic and serves as an adviser to the<br />

U.S. Department of Health and Human<br />

Services Office of Adolescent Health.<br />

He also has helped organizations in<br />

other communities form similar teen father<br />

programs. His interest in helping this<br />

population began 20 years ago, with<br />

the Jamaica Father’s Project in New York<br />

City. Haki moved to Central Florida in<br />

2005 and started Young Fathers one year<br />

later.<br />

“We are child advocates,” he said.<br />

“Young kids don’t know how to raise<br />

children.”<br />

The young men typically are uneducated<br />

and lack resources. Haki said most people<br />

do not care about this population. They do<br />

not vote. They do not have jobs or cars.<br />

Young Fathers does not charge the young<br />

men it serves.<br />

“We help young men be more responsible<br />

fathers,” said Haki, calling<br />

this his life’s work. ª<br />

6 x September 7 - 20, 2017 x www.SouthwestOrlandoBulletin.com<br />

In a city where new restaurants<br />

close almost as quickly as they open<br />

without explanation, El Inka Grill<br />

is beating the odds. The original location<br />

of this Peruvian restaurant, in<br />

Hunter’s Creek, opened in 2011.<br />

According to chef and owner<br />

Ivan, “Our guests come from all<br />

over, and have been so welcoming<br />

and supportive in making us part of<br />

the community, we decided to open<br />

up another location in Dr. Phillips.<br />

We are so grateful for the support<br />

we have received so far, and we<br />

hope to continue to serve them well.”<br />

Ivan is thrilled to be approaching<br />

the Dr. Phillips location’s second-year<br />

anniversary in November. He invites<br />

everyone to either location to “experience<br />

the flavor of the most exotic of<br />

Latin cuisines, considered among the<br />

best in the world. The flavor is what<br />

sets apart Peruvian dishes.”<br />

Peru’s beautiful western coastal location<br />

in South America has allowed<br />

it to be a popular destination for<br />

many travelers and settlers. The country's<br />

culinary fusion developed over<br />

a long process of cultural exchanges<br />

BUSINESS<br />

between settlers such as Spanish,<br />

African, Chinese, Japanese and<br />

Italian, as well as many others. Peru’s<br />

adaptation of these influences have<br />

cultivated Peruvian food into a unique<br />

and delicious cuisine unlike any other.<br />

PROFILE<br />

For A Uniquely Flavored Experience<br />

Tantalize Your Taste Buds at El Inka Grill<br />

El Inka Grill’s<br />

abundant variety<br />

of internationally<br />

inspired recipes<br />

earn it the title<br />

of “Best South<br />

American Food”<br />

by World Travel<br />

Awards for five<br />

consecutive years.<br />

El Inka Grill’s abundant variety<br />

of internationally inspired recipes<br />

earned it the title of “Best South<br />

American Food” by World Travel<br />

Awards for five years running. The<br />

London-based rankings organization<br />

called the restaurant a “leading<br />

culinary destination.”<br />

El Inka Grill is best known for its<br />

fresh citrus lime marinade used in the<br />

signature ceviche recipes. Ceviche is<br />

traditionally served as a refreshing<br />

cold dish of combinations of white<br />

fish, shrimp, octopus or squid with<br />

onions and garlic. For those who prefer<br />

their fish hot, there is also a grilled<br />

lobster, mahi-mahi and salmon<br />

ceviche. All ceviche is made to order.<br />

Sauces are essential ingredients<br />

in Peruvian food, and El Inka Grill<br />

boasts some famous ones. The salsa<br />

madre (mom’s salsa) is made with<br />

fresh in-house spices. The pesto and<br />

soy sauces also have a unique combination<br />

of seasonings, making each<br />

distinctly South American.<br />

It’s the mixing of flavors that<br />

make for amazing tastes. For those<br />

who have never had Peruvian food<br />

before, they will notice a familiarity<br />

yet a new flavor altogether. The<br />

way Peru has infused the variety of<br />

flavors from its cultural influences<br />

makes each dish uniquely Peruvian.<br />

For example, the stir-fried rice and<br />

<br />

ENROLLING


wok dishes, like the chaufa and its<br />

famous lomo saltado, are Asianinfluenced.<br />

It is the combination of<br />

flavors that allows these dishes to<br />

take on a whole new dimension.<br />

The selection of unique beef, poultry<br />

and seafood entrees is plentiful<br />

and appeals to a wide range of<br />

palettes. There is charbroiled Black<br />

Angus skirt steak served with linguine<br />

and/or french fries and white rice<br />

for the less adventurous patron. The<br />

seafood is prepared either broiled,<br />

fried or sautéed. Many of the entrees<br />

are served with fried yucca or plantains.<br />

There are also children-sized<br />

portions and a selection of authentically<br />

seasoned soups, salads and<br />

desserts.<br />

Those with a lighter appetite<br />

should consider the causas or tiraditos.<br />

Causa is a delicate potato puree<br />

seasoned with yellow Peruvian pepper,<br />

lime juice and oil, topped with<br />

either chicken, shrimp or octopus<br />

salad. Order one or the trio. Tiradito<br />

is thin, sliced, fresh fish marinated in<br />

citrus lime juices and smothered in<br />

your choice of Peruvian red rocoto,<br />

yellow pepper cream or creamy<br />

black olive sauce.<br />

El Inka Grill also offers a choice of<br />

eight lunch specials for only $9.95.<br />

They are served Monday through<br />

Friday from 11:30 a.m.-3 p.m.<br />

Regular dining hours are Monday<br />

through Thursday from 11:30 a.m.-10<br />

p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11:30<br />

a.m.-11 p.m., and Sunday from noon-<br />

10 p.m. On Friday and Saturday evenings,<br />

live music begins at 6:30 p.m.<br />

There is both indoor and outdoor<br />

seating, and El Inka Grill’s exceptional<br />

serving staff is bilingual, adding an<br />

extra layer of authenticity.<br />

For an unparalleled dining experience,<br />

visit El Inka Grill at either of<br />

its local establishments: 7600 Dr.<br />

Phillips Blvd. or 4106 Town Center<br />

Blvd. The Hunter’s Creek restaurant<br />

also has a separate dining room that<br />

seats 40 to accommodate private<br />

celebrations.<br />

Be sure to check out El Inka Grill’s menu on its website<br />

at www.elinkagrill.com, where there’s a mouthwatering<br />

photo and complete description of each<br />

dish. For more information, call 407-930-2810 (Dr.<br />

Junior Players Golf Academy<br />

It’s More Than Training Champions<br />

Interested in playing for your favorite<br />

college team or one day rubbing<br />

elbows with pro golfer Rory<br />

McElroy? Visit the Junior Players<br />

Golf Academy for a day, and<br />

you’ll see that these impressive<br />

goals of golfing success are not only<br />

dreams but realities.<br />

The world-renowned Junior Players<br />

Golf Academy has received acclaim<br />

for producing quality junior golfers<br />

at its Hilton Head, South Carolina,<br />

location, and now, a new location<br />

has opened in Orlando to train<br />

national and international golfing<br />

hopefuls.<br />

Located at the Orange County<br />

National Golf Center and Lodge, the<br />

JPGA golf academy accepts, not only<br />

full-time students traveling from other<br />

states and countries, but also local junior<br />

players who wish to further their<br />

passions for the game of golf.<br />

“We are very simple and are a<br />

boutique academy, where we don’t<br />

have 100 kids in our academy. We<br />

want kids [who] are here for the right<br />

reasons and want to train to possibly<br />

play college golf, kids [who] have a<br />

passion and motivation to take their<br />

skills to the next level,” said Keith<br />

Bach, JPGA’s president.<br />

On the Green<br />

Much of the development of the<br />

JPGA Orlando location was taken<br />

from the success of JPGA’s Hilton<br />

Head location, with a focus on five<br />

key components: fitness, training,<br />

schooling, facilities and housing.<br />

Hilton Head’s 11,000-square-foot office/training<br />

facility on the 5-by-12<br />

mile island allows students the exclusivity<br />

to harness their golfing talents<br />

and be responsible for their needs at<br />

a young age.<br />

The Orlando location opens up the<br />

same opportunities in a big way with<br />

Junior Players Golf Academy prepares young golfers for challenges on the course as<br />

well as in life.<br />

improving one’s game and maturity<br />

through Orange County National’s<br />

36-hole championship courses,<br />

state-of-the-art driving range, and<br />

practice areas that are perfect for<br />

working on short game, especially<br />

having access to the short course,<br />

“The Tooth.”<br />

“It’s a great spot to take advantage<br />

of all aspects of the game,”<br />

Keith said. “It benefits the students<br />

as they learn and prepare for<br />

tournament golf.”<br />

For full-time students, Windermere<br />

Preparatory School and<br />

The Crenshaw School allow<br />

PROMOTIONAL FEATURE<br />

students to continue their educations<br />

as they attend JPGA, while students<br />

also train in fitness and work on the<br />

mental side of the game to help them<br />

prepare for the mental pressures that<br />

occur in competitive golf and traveling<br />

for tournaments.<br />

Structure & More<br />

What Keith prides JPGA on and<br />

families have found beneficial is the<br />

structure of the golf academy for all<br />

students, which couples well with<br />

the on-site coaching staff, who are<br />

equally devoted and passionate, just<br />

like the students. Clive McCann<br />

is the head coach for JPGA and<br />

has an unbelievable passion for<br />

teaching juniors.<br />

“We want to make sure that the<br />

students are successful in everything<br />

in addition to golf, like doing well in<br />

school, doing well at home, and going<br />

on the road,” Keith said. “There<br />

are certain guidelines that we stick<br />

to in making sure that students are<br />

there for the right reasons, because<br />

they tend to become more successful<br />

that much quicker.”<br />

One example is Ewen Ferguson,<br />

a previous JPGA student, who recently<br />

turned professional last year<br />

and won the 2013 Boys Amateur<br />

Championship, 2014 Scottish Match<br />

and Stroke Play, 2015 Walker Cup,<br />

and took part in the Professional<br />

European Tour last year. He plans to<br />

come back to train again with JPGA<br />

coaches in the near future.<br />

Another JPGA success story is<br />

that of a teenage girl from Chile.<br />

She went from being a beginner<br />

golfer, not being able to break 100,<br />

to playing for one of the most reputable<br />

colleges in South Carolina for<br />

women’s golf.<br />

“We have taken students [who]<br />

are very good players to students<br />

[who] are somewhat beginner level,<br />

who have realized that golf is<br />

something they want to pursue and<br />

want to play college golf,” Keith<br />

said. “It’s our job to guide and make<br />

them better, while nurturing the students<br />

and giving them a sense of<br />

independence.”<br />

Words can only do so much, so<br />

plan a visit today, and see how the<br />

Junior Players Golf Academy can<br />

help your child achieve success in<br />

both golf and life.<br />

COACH’S CORNER<br />

“We are coming off of a victory in our<br />

spring game against a tough Gainesville<br />

High School opponent on the road.<br />

Our team worked extremely hard in the<br />

weight room and during seven-on-seven<br />

tournaments this summer, and is much improved<br />

from last year. Our players [who]<br />

were sophomores and learning last year<br />

are now juniors and have on-field success.<br />

We look to have a winning season<br />

and a playoff berth. Players to watch<br />

are Hawke Forsythe (OL), Darrell<br />

Harding (WR) and Tre Jackson (DE).”<br />

Coach Light<br />

West Orange High School<br />

“Olympia has set the expectations for<br />

this team very high. We have dedicated<br />

this season to all of the players and coaches<br />

before us. Without their hard work and<br />

dedication to the school and community,<br />

we would not have this great opportunity.<br />

It is our turn to carry the torch and keep the<br />

legacy alive. “<br />

Coach Hayes<br />

Olympia High School<br />

“The First Academy’s football program<br />

is entering the season with a strong record.<br />

Last year we went 9-0 in the regular<br />

season. The offensive and defensive lines<br />

have been strengthened and will be the<br />

keys to a successful Royals football season.<br />

Offensive skill positions are strong<br />

and will be led by QB Alex Eleyssami,<br />

RB Rolous Frazier, WR Parker Mara<br />

and WR Alex Shields. Defensively,<br />

Jackson Toth, JL Fleming, Hunter<br />

Smallback, Lake Ellis, Mike<br />

Shanahan and Nate Edwards will<br />

be responsible for keeping teams out of<br />

the end zone. Our team is eager and<br />

ready to kick off the season. Go Royals!”<br />

Westbrook Elementary teachers<br />

and staff members had a lot of fun<br />

preparing for the start of the school<br />

year. No ordinary year, WES is celebrating<br />

its 10th year. The school’s<br />

Partners in Education, including<br />

House Blend Cafe, made sure staff<br />

members were fueled with muffins<br />

and coffee. Lunch was presented<br />

www.SouthwestOrlandoBulletin.com x September 7 - 20, 2017 x 27<br />

by the PTO and catered by Tijuana<br />

Flats and more. Teachers got to<br />

build their own Tijuana Flats meals,<br />

exactly to their liking, as well as enjoy<br />

a salsa bar. Crafty Susan also<br />

helped beautify the media center.<br />

This year’s focus is “Persevering<br />

With Pride,” with “pride” representing<br />

perseverance, respect, integrity,<br />

(self) discipline and effort. WES<br />

teachers aim to infuse these traits<br />

with their students throughout the<br />

year.<br />

Beads for Beats Inc. representatives<br />

announced the Beads4Beats<br />

EnduRUNce 5K walk/run will<br />

take place Sept. 23 at 8 a.m. at Dr.<br />

P. Phillips Community Park. The<br />

not-for-profit organization, founded<br />

in 2011, helps terminally and chronically<br />

ill children and their families.<br />

“Beads” (bracelets) represent a<br />

circle of love that is given to sick<br />

children to help them remember<br />

that they are thought of and loved.<br />

“Beats” stands for keeping the heartbeats<br />

going for as long as possible.<br />

B4B anticipates more than 200 individuals<br />

and families participating<br />

in the run/walk. Its goal is to raise<br />

$10,000 to support its mission. Onehundred<br />

percent of the proceeds,<br />

after expenses, will be used for<br />

outreach services.<br />

A recent independent study provided<br />

compelling evidence that<br />

Girls on the Run is highly effective<br />

at driving transformative and<br />

lasting change in the lives of third- to<br />

fifth-grade girls. The program’s intentional<br />

curriculum places an emphasis<br />

on developing competence,<br />

confidence, connection, character,<br />

caring and contribution in young<br />

girls through lessons that incorporate<br />

running and other physical activities.<br />

Throughout the course of the 10-<br />

week after-school program, girls<br />

learn critical life skills, including<br />

managing emotions, resolving conflict,<br />

helping others and making<br />

intentional decisions.<br />

The independent study was conducted<br />

by Maureen R. Weiss,<br />

Ph.D., a leading expert on youth<br />

development.<br />

“Girls on the Run participants<br />

scored higher in managing emotions,<br />

resolving conflict, helping others<br />

and making intentional decisions<br />

www.SouthwestOrlandoBulletin.com x September 7 - 20, 2017 x 37<br />

than participants in organized sports<br />

or physical education,” Weiss said.<br />

“Being able to generalize skills<br />

learned in the program to other situations,<br />

such as at school or at home,<br />

is a distinguishing feature of Girls<br />

on the Run compared to traditional<br />

youth sports and school physical<br />

education, and suggests that the<br />

intentional life skills curriculum and<br />

coach-training program can serve as<br />

exemplars for other youth programs.”<br />
