CSA Student Honor their Heroes at Annual Breakfast
CMSD NEWS BUREAU
At the Cleveland School of the Arts this morning, breakfast was made for heroes. More than 80 students invited a person who has had an impact on their lives as a way to say, “Thank you.”
Shaunquitta Walker, the CSA Parent Advisory Committee chairperson, says the breakfast was started four years ago so students could honor that special someone in their lives, and the person may not be a parent.
“We normally have Muffins with Mom or Donuts with Dad, but in today’s society some students are not with their biological parents, they are with a relative, caregiver or in a foster home situation,” said Walker. “This gives students an opportunity to tell the ones they love how much they appreciate them for the sacrifices they made.”
Tony Crump, an advisory committee member, says the most important part of the program for him is when students tell their heroes why they are so important.
