Fort Bend Regional Council on Substance Abuse and LCISD host Leadership Project
Fort Bend Regional Council on Substance Abuse, Inc. along with Lamar Consolidated Independent School District joined Fort Bend County community leaders to host Leadership High School 2014. This annual initiative united 60 teens from four LCISD high schools, alumni leaders, FBRC staff and school district and community volunteers to empower students to be leaders within their community.
This year’s Leadership Class undertook a large project at Jane Long Elementary School in Richmond. The 60 youth worked hard to build a Discovery Center, paint and repair 15 picnic tables, power wash the entrance to the school, paint buildings, build a greenhouse, assemble a composter, paint several bulletin boards, build soccer goals and many other projects to help the elementary school.
This project was made possible by the George Foundation, the Union Pacific Foundation, the Fred and Mabel R. Parks Foundation and Living Improvements.
