Brain Games


Payne Education Center would like to extend our sincere thanks to those who participated in Payne Brain Games 2019. With your support, we raised over $50,000!

Emceed by local comedian and education advocate Spencer Hicks, this spirited trivia night at Will Rogers Theatre increased both awareness about dyslexia and funds to support Payne's mission to ensure that "No Child Should Struggle to Read."
