CSKYWLA High celebrates Youth Motivation Day

Coretta Scott King Young Women’s Leadership Academy (CSKYWLA) High School welcomed 11 Alive’s Donna Lowry to speak to their students for Youth Motivation Day on Feb. 17. Lowry shared some experiences  from her childhood that inspired her to become a journalist.

As a small token of appreciation, Lowry was presented with pink and brown links to add to the chain that is being created to help spread kindness and compassion in honor of Rachel’s Challenge. For more information on Rachel’s Challenge visit 11alive.com.

The students at CSKYWLA also were honored to have Elder Bernice King visit in Janurary to kick off  the 100 Days of Nonviolence Campaign. All of the students  signed a Commitment Pledge Card to live by the Six Principles of Kingian Nonviolence. Currently, the students are journaling their journey through the 100 days and reading the novel, “My Life with Martin,” written by the school’s namesake, the late Coretta Scott King.

Big ups to school counselor Star Whitley for sharing the information. Welcome to the APS family!
