“The myriad situations that I have experienced while leading and participating in student organizations have provided me with many friendships and fostered a deeper understanding of the complexities of effective communication. As a leader, I have facilitated the diffusion of ideas by catalyzing activities for diverse populations.”
The founding group, the Racial Awareness Pilot Project, was created through student initiative and led by Mrs. Linda Bates-Parker. The Committee for Dialogue on Racial Awareness - started the year before - built the RAPP experience, recruited for the program, and selected members.
Many members of this committee participated in the program and together they created the longest lasting traditions of the program: the end-of-year group photo and creation of the group-specific RAPP t-shirt.
This year began our commitment that continues to this day to the motto and philosophy of Each One Teach One.
