In loving memory of Latricia Ledet.

NFL Alumni Jacksonville Chapter is proud to donate $2400 to the Mind of the Future Academy Foundation.  We also want to thank the Ledet Family for also donating on behalf of Latricia Ledet, former NFL Alumni Jacksonville “Roar” Cheerleader who passed away in 2011.

Latricia was also a Board Member for our Cheerleader Programs and believed in giving back to our youth! 

The Minds of the Future Academy was established in 2016. The school provides exceptional childcare and early childhood education through infant care, preschool and other age-specific programs. In 2018, Minds of the Future Academy was accredited with the Florida Department of Education for private schools.  

Dr. Cynthia Smith, Owner has more than 16 years of education experiences. As a product of Duval County public schools, she believes that all her students deserve academic excellence combined with the development of articulate, confident, responsible citizens of the world.  

In May 2019, Minds of the Future Academy opened its 2nd location which is designated to be a Science, Technology, Engineering, And Math (STEAM) Academy for Pre-K and Kindergarten. The academy has partnered with community advocates Microsoft Technologies and local STEAM schools.  

The NFL Alumni Jacksonville Chapter both Players and Cheerleaders hope to continue to support the Minds of the Future Academy and its missions.
