Community Service On World Kindness Day, students teamed up with ViP Tutoring to pick up trash around their community in Clemmons!

At HOPE of Winston-Salem, our middle schoolers joined ViP Tutoring to package meals for people in our community!

Crosby Scholars had a Day of Service with SPARK and the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office! Students sorted winter clothing to prepare for a community distribution with Samaritan Ministries.

Did you know you can participate as a Crosby Scholar in the Jaycees Holiday Parade for community service?! Crosby Scholars of all ages had a blast!

Leadership Council Member Spotlights I joined Crosby Leadership Council to connect with other middle school students to share ideas. I am looking forward to making new friends and learning more about leadership. Kenzie B. | Clemmons Middle

I joined Crosby Scholars Leadership Council because I feel like I'm an awesome leader. I love to help my community and I feel like Crosby Scholars is the best way! Lakoya P. | Northwest Middle

I’ve enjoyed many things about the Leadership Council but so far it would have to be the inclusivity they have and how everyone is welcome. The Crosby Scholar Leadership Council has helped me in all aspects of my life even in my athletics! Reagan G. | NCLA
