These students are members of an African-American academic achievement group, The L.E.A.D. Scholars. This is our inaugural year and we aim to promote academic success while enhancing the social, emotional, and physical well being of young ladies and making connections between the students, the school, and the community.
Excellent role models, motivated learners, and the future leaders of their generation, these young ladies deserve recognition for their current accomplishments and future endeavors including pursuing higher education and attaining college degrees.
Our students have been committed to the L.E.A.D. Scholars organization and given of themselves tirelessly. We have made extraordinary efforts to connect our students to the school and community. We have hosted food drives, wellness classes (Zumba, yoga, meditation, journaling), and helped to expose students to post-secondary options.
Our students need to know that academic achievements are just as important, if not more, than athletic achievements.
We are hosting an Achievement Awards Brunch, much like athletic banquets, to highlight the academic accomplishments of our girls and group. A back-to-school care package (backpacks/notebooks/binders/pens/pencils/paper/folders) helps to set them up for continued success.
