My Students

Our school is crowded inter-city high school in Oklahoma City. Most of the students are from low income families and most qualify for free and reduced-price lunches. Recently there have been budget cuts across the state that has impacted education. Teachers and student are struggling to make this a successful year with limited supplies.

Our school has about 1800 students from ninth to twelfth grade.

Most student are happy to be here at school and try very hard. They have seen their parents struggle and are trying to get an education so they can do better.

My Project

As the school nurse I see this every day. A girl starts her period unexpectedly and just needs a simple pad to get back to learning. Sounds like a simple thing but at our school that has had funding significantly reduced there are no pads to provide. The student either has to call home and wait for a parent to bring something. Most of the time they have to go home and change then come back by the time the parent gets to the school. They are missing valuable class time. This time they miss is so unnecessary because there is an easy solution if we had the pads to provide. This product would greatly impact the girls by not having to miss class time.
