My Students

Our diverse students have many obstacles that get into their way of being successful. Most of our students come from low income areas, and physical activity is the most effective way of guidance towards a positive life. My students have been torn with the latest disaster from Hurricane Harvey.

Students are gradually trying to get their life's back together, and need to know someone cares.

Many of our students come from damaged families, which entail true distractions to a adolescent's growth. There is no doubt that with the right resources, and the thought of equality our students will succeed.

My Project

"Are we ever replacing our weights we lost to Harvey?", is the question that brought me towards pushing towards rebounding from this event.

I realized after returning to campus that the students important outlet of weightlifting was essential towards the solidification of their education.

All kids need outlets to escape adolescent pressures, and stresses of growing up. Our students huge outlet from these stresses and daily pressures was weightlifting.

We must replace the lost weight equipment to bring back these less fortunate student's one unique outlet. I am asking for some weight lifting resources including two barbell bumper plate sets, a 160lb barbell premium bumper plates bundle,and a set of battle ropes for cross strength training. I'm hoping that by bringing back this outlet for students to use, that my students will once again show eagerness to learn the daily lessons gained through education.
