It's "ice cold" to go back to school
Back to school?
Yes, back to school. There are some school systems in the metro and greater Atlanta area that start as soon as this past Friday up through August 7th. With the earlier start of the fall semester, it can be something of a shock to the system of students, faculty, staff, administration, and parents.
This past Friday, students in Newton County started their school year (and yes, that is relatively early). Thankfully, in addition to the energy provided by the personnel, there are those from the community who do what they can provide a sense of encouragement for a positive start to the 2017-18 school year.
On Friday, July 28, 2017, members of the Loganville-Conyers Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. (Sigma Eta Lambda) take time to partake of welcoming students, along with their parents, faculty, staff, and administration, on their first day of school. While the gesture of providing a word of encouragement or a "high-five" may seem trivial, members of the chapter understand what it can do for those getting ready to embark on their academic journey.
In taking time to give back on the level they do, the members are able to encourage others from multiple segments of the community to volunteer on the best means and manner possible. Ranging from working in the media center, speaking to classes, providing mentoring programs, reading programs, and other means of engagement, it can potentially speak volumes when members of the immediate and surrounding community are able to do what they can to be the best resources possible.
Making it happen in a constructive manner is part of any entity's mantra when it comes to outreach and service. The members of the Loganville-Conyers chapter not only do so on the first day of school, but other ways to do what they can to lead by example.
And in their usual moniker, it's an "ice cold" and sincere way to do what you can when you can as best as you can.
