My Students

My students attend a public high school in the rural South that is approximately 38% free and reduced lunch in a district that serves a population that is 46% free and reduced lunch.

My students astound me daily with their talent, work ethic, creativity, generosity and compassion.

Our small town has survived two major natural disasters in the past 5 years. Community is important to us and we would like to enhance the culture of community in our school and district.

My Project

Denis Estimon, founder of We Dine Together and Director at Be Strong global will speak to our students about resiliency, combating social isolation and bullying, and inspire students to take action and be a light in their school and community.

This experience will provide support for students who battle loneliness and encourage students to reach out to others who may be feeling alone, provide coping strategies for bullying and teen mental health issues and promote unity, kindness and love in our school.

Please help bring Mr. Estimon to our school in order that our students can learn about the importance of kindness in their everyday lives and how they can make a positive difference in the lives of others. Be Strong has graciously offered to provide each student in grades 9 -12 with a backpack as part of this special day.
