Southwest Middle students who participate in Student Council and the
Civic Voices Club joined Kids First of the Carolinas to provide gifts
for the holidays to more than 2,000 children in Charlotte. The students
stuffed a bus with toys, clothes and supplies.
“Our students’ mindset and their can-do-it spirit and thinking about
others outside of themselves is something that we should all live each
and every day,” said Principal Merita Little. “If we had more examples
of this in our society, I think the world would be a better place.”
