Greetings! I hope everyone is having a great summer! To those who came and joined us for the inaugural Aurora Pride Parade, I could not be more grateful! The PRIDE was strong on that day! What an amazing experience to see the community come out by the thousands to support LGBTQ+ folks! We were joined by Warriors past, present and future, and despite the heat, we had a truly amazing day!
We have a couple of other cool things going on this summer! Two of our members were selected to attend the Illinois Safe Schools Alliance Action Camp. They will come back as even more FIERCE leaders and advocates for an awesome next year!
One of our members was also selected to be on the GLSEN National Student Council. This summer Victorea will to be one of 18 students from across the country to attend a 4 day Leadership summit in NEW YORK CITY! She will also help advise GLSEN this whole school year on projects like Ally Week, No Name Calling Week, and Day of Silence!
I couldn't be more proud of the work that we do at WVHS, throughout the district, community, state (and now country!). I hope everyone enjoys the rest of the summer and comes back recharged and ready to go! We are going to be busy!
