Firefly Forts Nashville is a new franchise of the Atlanta-based business that was founded by Mike and Kristin Scaglione. The couple started the company as a way to reduce their children’s screen time and get them outside more, but it has since expanded to include franchises in Miami and Nashville. However, Mike has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer, which has made things difficult for the family. Despite this, they are fortunate to have found someone to run the business in Nashville, allowing them to focus on his health and their family.
The Scagliones are not just running a business; they are creating meaningful connections with their customers. One of their customers turned out to be Mike’s Neurosurgeon, showing the impact and reach of their business. The company has not only created memories for families but also helped them create fun and memorable moments despite the challenges they may face.
As the school voucher debate takes center stage, one mom from Arizona, Carrie Sharp, sought to understand the issue and its potential impact. With two boys in elementary school, she wanted to be well-informed about the issue. Arizona, where a school voucher program has been in place for 13 years, was researched for insight into the potential outcomes of such a program. This reporting has given Carrie a lot to think about as a mom and a taxpayer, and she believes it will do the same for others.
