Diversity Leaders in training

Our newly selected "Diversity Leaders" participated in a second full-day workshop with a professional trainer from the Boston Anti-Defamation League's "World of Difference" institute.  WHS Diversity Leader program is one in which juniors and seniors are nominated and selected to become leaders and facilitators of a peer education program in our school.  Their mission is to build a culture of acceptance, a norm where “put-downs” and harassment are unacceptable behaviors within our community.  The student leaders work to dispel stereotypes and call their peers’ attention to discriminatory language and bullying behavior.  This student leadership initiative continues to have a tremendously positive influence on the culture of our school.

This year's new leaders from the junior class, pictured below, are:  Courtney Sullivan, Brian Dickey, Brianna Collard, Joe Hurton, Emily Hammond, Nicole Galli, Tyler Strauss, Daniella Iannuzzi, and Grace Fanikos.  They join the second-year seniors to round out our full complement of Diversity Leaders.
