Three cheers to students and staff at Summit Academy Charter for hosting the second annual Relay For Life walk with the American Cancer Society on June 6.
“Our mission is to help raise awareness, celebrate life and ultimately, fight back against cancer,” said Natasha Campbell, founder and executive director of Summit.
This is the second year that the academy has partnered with the American Cancer Society and has helped raise awareness and funds for the cause, and the school continues to develop young people into community champions.
“We take the time to acknowledge and commemorate the millions of people, whether be they survivors or caregivers, that struggle with the negative effects of cancer,” Campbell added.
Summit Academy Charter School is a college preparatory school that opened in 2009 for students in six through 12 grades, with the motto, “Bridging the gap, reaching new heights.”
Standing O has its own motto: Reaching new heights and shouting out!
