Molly Beuke (M.A. ’14), a professional school counselor at Stony Point South Elementary School in Kansas City, Kansas, recently worked with a group of 4th and 5th graders on student-led service learning project, the purpose of which was to foster leadership skills in young people and provide support for their community. The students, all part of the school’s Young Leaders of Tomorrow, met once a week throughout the academic year working on character building and social/emotional development, before embarking on this final community service project.
The students’ efforts culled donated pet food and supplies and an additional $150 to benefit Wayside Waifs, a no-kill animal shelter in south Kansas City. Congratulations to Beuke and her students for being recognized by the Kansas City Kansas Schools for an outstanding project that impacted student learning and development.
