LEAD Earns Community Impact Project of the Year Award
The Tennessee Charter School Center named LEAD Public Schools Serve Others Stations the Community Impact Project of the Year award winner on Thursday.
This award recognizes the work across LEAD’s campuses to provide support to families when needed, by meeting needs from internet hot spots to food to paper goods.
The stations served more than 450 families total in 2020. More than 180 families received boxes of food, cleaning supplies, and toiletries to make ends meet directly at their homes and families and staff received 200 hotspots for internet connectivity.
Many in the network contributed to the SOS stations. Corey Burton, director of enrollment and family engagement, came up with the idea after a student came to him in need. Gary Satyshur, director of network operations, and the entire Family and Community Engagement (FACE) team provide help in connecting our families to the resources they need in a timely and respectful manner.
