School was not fun for many of us in prior generations, but the time has changed for many students. I would like to do something productive for future Tigers at Chaffey High School. I would like to see about a fifty dollar award that would be applied to a senior who has participated in the gay straight alliance club on campus and made a lasting impact to the school community.
Even though I graduated there fifteen years ago, and perhaps might even student teach in that district where Chaffey High School is a part of, I would like to see an award that states that the Chaffey High School alumni appreciate their efforts to make the school a better place.
I will likely need to talk to the school principal about how to endow an award for the Class of 2013 and beyond.
Likely criteria I would see would be, this award would be open to any student straight or LGBT that has helped foster change in their campus. This award would require a minimum of a 2.5 GPA and must be approved by the advisor on the campus. If the GSA no longer exists the money would be released to help efforts due to the McKinney-Vento efforts to help homeless students who may be at Chaffey High School.
I will see if any other Tigers who would like to partake in this effort.
