W Academy Students team up with the concord homeless shelter to help boost some confidence
The pieces came together and last Thursday, our student team and Miss Amanda provided free haircuts to over 20 very grateful men and women out of the Concord, CA shelter. What a great day. Patrick's project allowed us to provide a needed community service and an incredibly rewarding, perspective broadening experience for our students.
Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.
From Patrick Following the Event:
I would like to thank the senior leadership of West Academy for allowing Amanda and her students to participate in my MBA project. Amanda was highly professional and her ability to create a training environment in an unfamiliar setting was impressive. The haircuts, by far, made the evening by lifting the spirits of many struggling individuals.
The director of the shelter passes her sincere appreciation because haircuts are rarely donated. The director and students both shared a desire to have the opportunity to do this again.
I believe Amanda and the students left knowing that cutting hair is not only a way to earn a living, but also a way to make someone feel good.
Again, thank you for your support.
Let's keep it going
The response all-around has been nothing but positive and W Academy is actively pursuing opportunities to participate in similar events on a regular basis. Know of a way we can help? Don't hesitate to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
