Talson and Fernando
Beginning this year, students at Crossroads were given the opportunity to earn a community service credit for their transcripts. In order to do that, they were required to complete 75 hours of service. One of the ways students were able to accomplish that, was to serve with us here in the Project 479 room. Talson and Fernando were two students who reached their goal and we want to celebrate them!
Talson was a man of many trades and was willing to do anything he could to be of help. He assisted with everything from set up and tear down of our Christmas Marketplace to being willing to humbly serve his fellow classmates drinks and snacks from our coffee bar. Watching him grow in confidence as he accomplished each task and stepped out of his comfort zone to serve people was a blessing to us. We are so proud of him and his hard work.
Fernando came to us to earn a credit and he did, but he also found a spark! He did a fantastic job taking his time and beautifully painting our wood cutouts celebrating the two high schools in Rogers. Reaching his goal was important, but for us, seeing him find something he truly enjoyed and took great pride in was just as important. We are incredibly proud of him as well.
