An important part of being a Raider is understanding how one represents his/her school out in the community, and as many of the athletic teams and clubs at RHS have to do, give back to their community. At RHS, there is a class created specifically for this purpose of helping others and giving to those who need help. It is called Leadership. Under the instruction of Mrs. Lesa Knight, the students take on projects that involve helping others around the school, to figuring out how to help individuals in their community and beyond. On February 3, students did just that.

With student and staff donations, the Leadership class was able to collect 59 total of hats, gloves, scarves, and socks as well as an impressive 265 coats and sweaters. Then on Feb. 3, 15 of the Leadership students and three teacher chaperones arrived at RHS at 6 a.m. to pack their massive collection into the back of a bus to head to the Shepherd’s Way Relief Center.

Once there the students had to hand out the items and serve breakfast to some of Richmond’s homeless population.
