Student Council Raising Awareness on Important Issues in Uganda

Kids from House of Hope

Student Council has been busy the last month working on ideas and projects to go along with their New Global Citizens project, House of Hope.  Posters have been put up around the school and bookmarks are in the media center. Just this week students went on WPDM each day to share a little more about the country of Uganda, the important issues of child mortality, disease, education and medical care and what House of Hope is doing to meet the needs of the orphans in their care. There are also table tents displaying information about Uganda and House of Hope in the cafeteria.  Check them out!  Student Council member Taylor Helms designed these.  Be looking out for more information, projects and events in the months to come.  Student Council has some unique and fun ideas in store as they work alongside Piedmont High School to educate our schools and community about the issues and people being affected and helped by House of Hope.
