The Student Diversity Leaders Club (SDLC) with assistance from Mrs. Grabis and Dr. Asprion recently hosted our 2024 Global Awareness Day. With everything going on in the world, the SDLC focused this year’s theme on Ethical Empathy. The goal was to create a day dedicated to the opportunity to appreciate the perspectives, feelings, and ethical considerations of others. Ethical Empathy involves not just recognizing different viewpoints but also embracing a genuine concern for the well-being and rights of individuals and communities.
The day was filled with sessions led by students, parents, teachers, and administrators that focus on topics related to Ethical Empathy. The morning began in the Field House with an address from Mr. Lewis. Some highlights of the day included a celebration of Lunar New Year and Mardi Gras with music by the Angarita brothers and our resident band, Soundproof. We also expanded our ‘Career Track’ to include 18 parents from various professional backgrounds. that provided students a glimpse into the roads they navigated to get there and what it takes to get there.
The day culminated with a keynote address from motivational speaker, Ty Howard. Mr. Howard is a US Navy veteran, author, philanthropist, and business leader. His address focused on the importance of Ethical Empathy not only in our school but also in the community.
Special thanks to all who participated in Global Awareness Day 2024!
