HIDDEN HOMETOWN HEROES CHS Sources of Strength Leadership Group WHO: Lucas Mansmith, Rachel Roehrich, Trey Shereck WHAT: CHS Sources of Strength Leadership Group WHERE: Century High School WHY: The CHS Sources of Strength Leadership Group is a newer club that focuses on bringing awareness to the issues and difficulties kids face in high school and early youth. Their first project this past year focused on spreading empathy through their school and community. The leadership group uses art to spread their positive message and grow awareness for these issues. This spring they are working on a photography project that will help diminish labels - labels that students give themselves and labels that others impose

on one another. “We really focus on spreading a positive message. This club is new, but it is already becoming very effective. Other schools have asked us to come and present on our different projects in hopes to start their own leadership club and spread the positivity,” expresses Rachel. “The mission behind this spring project is to remove labels from our community and show that labels can actually hurt people even if we do not notice. Our main goal for these projects and the club is to spread empathy and show our school that people do struggle even if they do not show it,” says Trey.
