Week-long campaign of caring for others and knowing your identity coming to PHS
BATTLE GROUND — Leaders at Prairie High School, (PHS), know that identity is one of the most crucial developments in young people’s high school years. Clark County, Brush Prairie
They also know what to do about it.
From Feb. 11-15, PHS will host its first ever Inspire Week. The week centers on equipping and sending out students to encourage and love their fellow students, staff members and the surrounding community.
Teams of student leaders, selected by staff, will brainstorm ideas of projects to impact the school. Things like positive notes, chalk messages, handing out chocolate and high-fives, or even showing appreciation for the coffee shop across the street, are all ideas.
In addition to the activation of students, a guest speaker will also be joining the event on Wed., Feb. 13.
Jamie Winship, a retired police officer from the Metro DC area and former CIA agent, will speak on identity and walking out who you are called to be.
A subject he is well versed in.
At the age of 19, Winship was offered his first position with the United States Central Intelligence Agency, as a currier. As time progressed, and he worked in law enforcement new opportunities with the agency came along.
Winship says he always knew what to pursue, because the things within his identity always produced positive end results.
Him and his wife Donna now run an organization devoted to training and equipping people in schools, the workplace and ministry, to walk out their identities.
In addition to Winship, an inspiration partnership with the wildly popular Dude. Be Nice project, (DBN), is also fueling passions for Inspire Week.
DBN is a national movement to have communities, often of students, reachout and bless someone who is often overlooked.
Inspire Week endeavours to emulate the mission of DBN and bring hope to a part of the country with rising suicide rates, said PHS administrators during Inspire Week orientation this week.
