LEAD Academy students are working together to give back to the Nashville community by volunteering at local organizations. The idea for a student-run community service club, called the Serve Others Club, was sparked in 2018 during a Freshman Seminar class at LEAD Academy.
Club President Nariah Majors saw the need for LEAD students to engage with the community through service. The club sponsor Lindsey Berry immediately worked to make their idea a reality.
The Serve Others Club volunteers at Second Harvest Food Bank, the YWCA and Soles4Souls to help make a difference in the lives of other community members. The club members stay busy year round championing shoe drives, delivering holiday meal boxes and supporting various causes on campus.
“Being the president of the Serve Others Club has given me a sense of responsibility and seeing other students excited to help our communities makes me proud that lead is progressing in academic and economic development,” said Nariah Majors, LAHS Senior.
“It makes me so proud to see our students desire to make an impact in our community,” said Lindsey Berry.
“This is a great group of students with a committed club sponsor who models our ethos through their actions,” said LEAD Academy Principal Dr. Tony Majors.
