SHS Group Hosts Custodian Dinner

SHS Leadership Academy serves custodial staff

The Shoemaker High School Chick-Fil-A Leader Academy honored the school’s custodial staff with a special meal for its spring service project.
The students planned, prepared and served a special meal for the mostly night-time staff and honored them during their evening break, group advisor and dyslexia specialist Deborah Moore said. 
"We wanted to make it really elegant for them since they have to work so hard keeping our school shiny and clean,” said Cayli Trent, one of the students who spearheaded the project.
“They do an amazing job and rarely get acknowledged for it. Most students never even see them, just our clean school," she said.
"While we're training to be good leaders, we learn how important service is,” said Jason Martin, another member of the service academy. “It feels great to serve people who deserve it so much."
The dinner at Shoemaker High School the night of April 11 was touching and special, Moore said.
Chick-Fil-A chooses one local high school each year for its national leadership course.
Teachers nominated students for the academy, which is limited to 30 members. They meet regularly for teambuilding and project planning.
This is the second year that Shoemaker hosted the academy. They completed a service project last semester, sending letters and holiday items to soldiers deployed to Kuwait.
