The scholarship has only one requirement, kindness. Each of our fifty nominees have touched another Richmond Burton student with kindness in some way. The student on the receiving end of this kindness took the time to pick up and complete an application from the counselors’ office. They were asked to explain a kind act and the impact it has had on their lives.

A diverse panel of judges had the painstaking process of choosing only two recipients; one male, one female. The judges did not know the names of the nominee nor the person who recommended them. In many cases, the students nominated do not know who has submitted the application in their name as is the case with our two winners. Some students were nominated by more than one person. Some had done many acts of kindness and some had done one. The judges based their decision on the impact the person had on the student that recommended them. Thank you to everyone who nominated someone for this award. And thank you to all those who live with kindness in their hearts on a daily basis.

Walk Through Darkness

Walk Through Darkness

Hello, Everyone,
it is that time of year again…the annual Walk Through Darkness in Chicago! I’m hoping you will walk with us again In honor of Isa and all those lost to suicide. The walk will take place on September 20th downtown Chicago. If you want to sign up again, you know what to do!!! Raising money for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is a great cause and please feel free to fundraise if you would like. Mostly, I just want to join the walk in Isa’s name. So no pressure with fundraising. We can all wear our different Isa shirts and bandanas and have a blast! Hope you can make it again. And bring your family and friends if you would like.

Love and gratitude,
tina 🙂
