Volunteers Needed to Fill Crucial Roles: HP Enterprise

In today’s High Point Enterprise, my friend and former colleague Katisha Hayes continues her series on Communities in Schools and the benefits this organization brings into our highly-impacted schools. See companion blog entry here from yesterday.

Hayes writes:

CIS leaders are making a com­munitywide ap­peal for more funding support, but there’s also an overshadow­ing need for vol­unteers who are willing to roll up their sleeves and help students overcome some of the education challenges in the city. “I’d like to see more people turn complaints (about our schools) into advocacy efforts, and I think that CIS does so as an organization,” says vol­unteer Edith Brady, curator of the High Point Museum.

I made mention here before that GCS needs to create a volunteer corps, so that those who want to go into our schools and make a difference can do so with relative ease. See previous blog entry here on the need to create such a corps.

E.C. 🙂
