We are so excited to announce the winners of our GSA grants! $500 will go to 10 different schools in Florida to help their gay-straight alliances thrive.
This pilot program was created and seen through by our President, Shawn Chaudhry, who has begun meeting with the schools' gay-straight alliances.
As you may know, Drew created the first GSA at Seminole High School and went on to win the Holocaust Museum's Anne Frank Humanitarian Award for his work. Schools with GSAs see a major drop in teen suicides. When there is a safe space for acceptance, students have more of a chance to succeed.
The least we can do is continue the good work that Drew did as a teen through his short adult life. We are pleased to announce our ten winners:
Lake Highland Prep
Marjory Stoneman Douglas
Mt. Dora HS
Join us in congratulating them!
