Chick-fil-A Leader Academy Honors First Responders In Impact Project!

main image

Our 28 students participating in Chick-fil-A Leader Academy completed a community-minded project as a capstone to their year-long leadership curriculum. The students chose to honor and show their appreciation to our community's first responders - firefighters and police officers. The Leader Academy members divided into teams with some writing notes of appreciation and encouragement, some shopping for gift basket items, others packing those special baskets for first responders, and finally small teams delivering the cards and baskets to extremely grateful police officers and firefighters.  

"These students have learned a great deal about being leaders in their communities, and this project is a visible demonstration of the potential they have for future leadership," said Rodney Bullard, vice president of community affairs at Chick-fil-A, Inc.  

Through Chick-fil-A Leader Academy, students are expected to learn leadership skills and apply them throughout the year to go out into the community and make an Impact through Action. In addition to this year-end project, Leader Academy members also made care packages and wrote notes of encouragement to service men and women overseas in the Middle East, and provided a new school uniform for every child at Chicora Elementary for their Do Good December project.  

These 28 amazing students have now graduated from Leader Academy, and up to 30 PCA high school students have the opportunity to participate next year. To learn more about the Chick-fil-A Leader Academy and to apply, simply click here
