About The Erika Center

The Erika Center at Bodine School serves as a dyslexia resource center for the entire Mid-South.The Erika Center is named after Erika Yunkun, who began attending Bodine in 2007. A model student, Erika's work ethic was eclipsed only by her compassion for and encouragement of her classmates. In 2011, Erika was diagnosed with a brain tumor and passed away soon after. In 2012, an anonymous, unsolicited donor contributed the 2nd largest individual gift in Bodine's history. The gift was made with only one restriction: it must preserve and honor the memory of Erika. In turn, The Erika Center at Bodine School was established.
