In a partnership with GE’s Bee Healthy campaign, 9th and 10th-grade students from Carver’s School of Health Sciences & Research participated in a simulated health clinic at 1 p.m. Wednesday. Three-time Olympic gold medalist Gail Devers also was on hand, inspiring students to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Click here to view Devers’ visit to Carver.
Of course, Carver’s HS&R students also have amassed an impressive list of accomplishments. Members of the 2010 Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) team placed first in Biomedical debate and second in CPR/First Aid during the state competition.
We’re excited to learn about a wonderful partnership between Project GRAD Atlanta and The New Schools at Carver and GivingPoint, a nonprofit based in nearby Roswell. The fine folks at GivingPoint shared this illuminating video clip (above) showing Carver students making a difference in their community.
According to representative Ansley Colby, GivingPoint is a youth-development initiative designed to inspire teens to find their passion, become actively engaged in their local communities, and develop into life-long contributors to society. “One of our top transformational priorities is to become a vehicle for nonprofits and schools to understand, engage, motivate and inspire young people to serve their community so that they can reach their full potential and succeed in life,” Colby said.
