On behalf of the students, faculty and staff at Northwest Early College High School, I would like to extend my appreciation for the generous donation made through the Taylor Wilson Thompson Family Foundation.
Aside from the strong focus on academics, we also have a sincere interest in developing leadership opportunities within our school and our community. Through the campus Community Service Organization, we will be able to provide students a variety of avenues whereby they can choose to make a difference in their school or community. This donation will enable us to develop the current program to allow more students to participate.
Our plan is to utilize this donation to impact the following areas: community outreach, head start program outreach, school community outreach and the development of a student ambassador program. The student participants will have the opportunity to develop leadership attributes that encompass skills such as: awareness and identification of issues in the community, developing, planning and executing self-selected programs, organizing student groups to meet set goals, and speaking before audiences. We believe that when students bring forth an issue that they care about, they will work passionately on making improvements. We want to support and guide this effort which is where the seeds of a budding leader are found.
Your passion and commitment for student leadership is remarkable and we want to commend you and your family for your efforts!
Once again, thank you for making this donation to our Griffin family!
