Made up of over 50 nationalities, the community capitalizes on this diversity as it creates global learners. Our students are special because they often work with our community to gain funding for better facilities, educational materials and beautifying the building and grounds. Many of them also in the last two years have participated in service learning projects to provide student made bedrolls for the homeless and help dress a poor village in Africa. The students themselves need funding but they are quick to help those in the community in need. My students are special and have inspired me to do whatever I can to insure their success through funding and contributing more of my own time and resources to them.
