“A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.” – Marcus Garvey
At the Ron Clark Academy, our students our split up into four houses that they will call home for the rest of their lives. The students can earn points for academic excellence, displaying good character, etc… Each house is lead by a student selected by the staff associated with that house and that student is called the house leader. This is a huge honor as for a student to be selected for this role.
The House of Amistad celebrates its new leadership by connecting the house leader with past house leaders of Amistad. This is a great way to develop a mentors for incoming leadership as they share lessons and perspective about leading in this capacity.
There is nothing like the moment when a couple of former house leaders stop by to pass down some wisdom to our new house leader. #AmistadForever
