“The Johnson City Schools Homeless Education Program helps students and their families who are in situations that are very difficult,” said Science Hill senior Clara Wood, who is a member of the Chick-Fil-A Leadership Academy. “This outreach helps the students stay in school and assist their families when possible.”
The Chick-Fil-A Leadership Academy is a national high school leadership program focused on impact thorough action. The program engages students in monthly Leader Labs with a focus on important leadership skills that they will use to create student-led Community Impact Projects. The “Battle on the Hill” is the community project for this year’s Science Hill group.
“We thought this would be a good way to bring the community together to help support homeless youth in our school system,” said Science Hill senior Tiara Harvey.
