SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Windsor Forest High school announced Tuesday they are joining national efforts to help fight childhood hunger as part of Chick-fil-A Leader Academy.
The seven-month program enables 30 students to learn leadership skills and then put them into action through a year-end local community impact project. The students will pack 900 meals for hungry children living in our community.
"They are definitely going to learn leadership skills. They are going to learn what it means to give back to the community. They are going to learn what it means to reach out to the community and to help those that are less fortunate and all of the excitement and all of the reward that goes along with that," said Carla Howze, a teacher.
Over 18,000 students and 600 other high schools in 33 states are participating in the Chick-fil-A Leader Academy.
