As a Red Ribbon service project, our Mustang Mentors lead a canned food drive to assist our local food pantry, Ecumenical Ministries with their Christmas Sharing program. Our Red Ribbon Leadership Student, Madi Jensen spear-headed our project to Be drug free as we Love Ourselves by Loving Our Neighbors. Our 3rd Grade Mustang Mentors are funded via a grant from the Jennifer Claire Moore Foundation. Mrs. Schoen and Mrs. Blount are the school sponsors.
Take the time to view this video of the 2014 Suicide Awareness Prevention Assembly organized by Baldwin County High School Peer Helpers. This assembly was done on Friday, September 12, 2014 at Bay Minette Middle School. What an amazing group of youth standing up to say, “We are here to listen, help and support you through whatever issue you may be facing!” Such a powerful assembly.

The rodeo festivities included “Hometown Heroes” on Thursday night, a tribute to military and emergency services personnel; “Tough enough to wear pink” on Friday night, a national rodeo movement in support of breast cancer awareness; and “School Spirit” on Saturday night, an opportunity for young and old to support Baldwin County schools by wearing their team colors.
All proceeds benefited the Jennifer Claire Moore Foundation, a nonprofit organization providing training, funding and support of Peer Helper Programs in over 45 public and private schools in Baldwin County impacting the lives of nearly 30,000 youth Pre-K through 12th grade. The Peer Helper programs empower students to serve as tutors, mentors, mediators and friends to their fellow students, supporting them through academic or personal struggles including preventing bullying, avoiding dropout, leaving destructive relationships, helping new students adjust and much more. Come out and support a great cause while having a great time!
Thank you to Devon Walsh with WKRG News 5 for sharing the amazing support Peer Helpers provide and upcoming Rodeo which funds this spectacular program!
