BHS Chick-fil-A Leader Academy Serves Others

The Chick-fil-A Leader Academy has had a busy first semester. The year began with the Kick-Off Event where 19 new students were welcomed. Mr. Curt Flournoy, the Chick-fil-A Milledgeville Operator provided lunch for the students as well as spoke to the group about the purpose and welcomed them into the program. The members began the event with an ice breaker activity - Guess It. The members dug right in and started planning the Do Good December project This service project emphasizes teamwork by asking students to “Drive, Do, and Deliver” during the holiday season. The students plan the project as well as implement it. The students at BHS decided to help students who may need a little extra food for the holidays. They packed 80 blessing bags with different items of food.Two of the Baldwin County School Buses were adopted and students were able to take the bags when they got off the bus. The food items came from the BHS student pantry that was the impact project completed by Chick-fil-A Leader Academy students in 2018. We have had several community organizations that continue to sponsor the pantry which enables us to keep it stocked with food items to serve the students at Baldwin High School. Northridge Christian Church of Milledgeville, Kappa Kappa Iota, Communities In Schools , teachers, administration, and BHS Beta Club donated this semester to help replenish the pantry which allowed us to pack so many bags for the holidays.
