Kurt and Brenda in Cali for CHEER
Kurt and Brenda made a special visit to a high school in Southern California to encourage the students to make a positive impact on someone else. The Warners spoke to the 4,000 students at Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Eastvale during two assemblies as part of CHEER – Conscious Helps Encourage Equal Respect. Roosevelt earned the appearance by the Warners with their enthusiastic implementation of the CHEER program during the pilot phase of the national expansion and partnership with Best Buddies. Since Fall 2014, Roosevelt has hosted three CHEER weeks with more than 300 students adopting a disability for a day and coming together at the week’s end to discuss the impact. The message of inclusion is taking hold at Roosevelt where the student body recently elected a student with downs syndrome as Homecoming Queen. During the assembly, Kurt reminded the audience that his trophies, rings and awards will soon be forgotten but the “impact you have on someone else is never forgotten.” Any schools interested in hosting a CHEER week at their school can inquire by calling the First Things First office at 602-385-0840.
