Grier students interested in helping out the community recently volunteered at a local broadcasting station’s community event. WPSU, the region’s PBS affiliate, hosted an Eventapalooza, where area children and their families visited the studio, met beloved PBS characters like the Cat in the Hat, made crafts, played games, and more! The Grier volunteers helped in a number of ways and received a glowing review from Carolyn Donaldson, the WPSU Community Engagement Manger. Ms. Donaldson writes in her email to Grier Admission Director Mrs. Jennifer Neely:
Thank you and your wonderful staff/faculty for arranging to transport and stay with your wonderful students who volunteered at Eventapalooza 2018 yesterday!
As I can attest to myself, they helped a great deal during the afternoon with boundless energy and smiles for the kids and parents who came!
I was working our Green Screen and the 3 young scholars who assisted me never showed signs of weariness despite the non-stop rush of kids the entire day! They did appreciate the food and drinks!
They were excellent examples of the values-driven, quality program Grier School offers to young women.
We would be honored to have them come back to help with our upcoming events.
On behalf of the entire staff, we thank you for your advocacy and support of WPSU!
Wow! Grier is so proud of our students who love to give back to the community and lead by example. Way to go!
