Paige Cash, Counselor, West End High School
Today was a day that confirmed what I have felt was part of my calling in life. I started out my morning listening to a heartfelt message from John Williams. My 7th through 12th grade student body was so engulfed in the message he was sharing that you could hear a pin drop. Students were able to relate with John and his story on many different levels. This was a moment some of them will never forget. I really appreciated the transparency and realness that came out during our assembly. We followed the assembly with HERO training involving a hand selected group of students. Not knowing what to expect, I sat in to listen. The more I heard the more excited I got. We as human beings are born with a “drive” inside of us. We have to be taught by example how to use our “drive” to attain positive outcomes. My students were encouraged and motivated today to be strong enough for two and live out the positive for the world to see! We are going to continue what we learned today and use this group as a leadership team to make a positive impact on our student body and community!!! We are Patriot Proud and we want the world to know it!!
