The Baldwin County School District will be hosting its annual “Educate to Graduate Rally,” a Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service Project, on Monday, January 15th from 8:45-10:30 AM at the Board of Education.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. devoted his life to social justice, equality and opportunity for all and on this day, we invite staff and community members to join us as we visit with students who are no longer in school to encourage them to finish their education. Participants, BCSD staff and community volunteers will head out to homes of students who have dropped out of high school in an effort to provide them with a packet of information on ways to obtain a high school diploma or GED.
“Our ‘Educate to Graduate Rally’ is a wonderful opportunity to honor Dr. King’s legacy of bettering our communities through service,” said Superintendent Dr. Noris Price. “Our volunteers will be going out and empowering these young adults to complete their education and lay the foundation for productive and successful lives in the future by going back to graduate from high school or complete their GED.”
If you would like to volunteer, please email Mr. Matt Wark at email@example.com by Wednesday, January 10th. This effort has the potential to change the lives of young adults in our community and the District hopes you will consider being part of this worthwhile project.
