Brooks County High Schoolers Pledge to Believe

| August 11, 2014

Brooks-County-Freshman-2018 QUITMAN, GA – Freshman 101 was an informative, fun-filled orientation designed to ease the transition from middle to high school. Herff Jones spoke to the group about believing in themselves and overcoming obstacles sharing his testimony. Afterwards, the freshman class signed the “Believe in U” banner and pledged to believe in themselves, make responsible decisions by completing required work, seeking assistance when needed, and be great by graduating in the class of 2018.

Aeshia Robinson, a rising junior at Brooks County High, provided an inspiring opportunity for the students to join her newly formed organization designed to increase the academic success of freshmen.

“Fresh Beginnings” was created to insure that every freshman that leaves Brooks County High does so with high integrity, strong ambition, and a positive attitude toward life and education. This mentoring program will aid in student transition and pair freshman with individuals that will assist them in adjusting to the social and academic changes they will face at the high school level. A number of beneficial sessions were provided by Lamar Thomas, Richard Andrews, S. Dasyam, Tammie Sumter, and Jarrod Perry. Students learned organizational strategies, to think “outside the box” in “Tips for Success” and were dazzled in the Puzzling Math session. The day concluded with a tour of the building and the completion of a time capsule activity which will be opened upon graduation in 2018.
