Teacher Shoutout! Tara Park

Since this week marks the end of a really crazy year where amidst pandemic challenges, our teachers have continued to shine, we want to first thank ALL teachers for ALL that you do every day and especially over the last few months! We hope that you are able to rest, relax, and rejuvenate this summer! 

Tara Park is a teacher at Northwestern High School. She wrote this about Miracle Park: “I have the opportunity to teach students with special needs each day. Not only do I share in the happiness and kindness that they exude, but I am able to see each of their individual talents and abilities. I am so excited that they will be able to share these talents and abilities with their community in an inclusive environment through Miracle Park. Thank you to everyone that has been part of helping to create this park.”

Sponsor: Founders Federal Credit Union

Bruce Brumfield, President/CEO of Founders Federal Credit Union shares his personal story that played a part in why they are a major donor to the Miracle Park!


"At Founders Federal Credit Union, our mission is to serve. To serve our members and to serve our communities. So, when we heard about this dream to build a park in Rock Hill that would change the landscape for people with disabilities, while embracing those of all abilities, we knew we not only had to support it, we had to be on the forefront. 

Our board of directors quickly gave us approval to do just that with a half million-dollar donation to help make Miracle Park a reality.
If you think about it, we all likely know someone or know of someone with a disability, who had a child with a disability, a parent with a disability, a friend with a disability. For many, this isn’t as far removed as you might think. I know it isn’t for me.
On August 25, 2016, I fell off a ladder while exiting a deer stand and shattered both of my he…
