2013 VISION BOARD PROJECT

Our  "vision board " presentation, made by Judith Falloon- Reid  another talented alumna, was an excellent concept, empowering students to set personal goals and envision their dreams by cutting and pasting images and words on a “board.” Students enjoyed this simple “hands on” workshop and they now had the opportunity to create their own " vision board " for life.

We were truly impressed and believe that this exercise will bring tremendous value to each student. This groundbreaking activity will expose their unlimited potential and outline an effective road map to help them attain their goals. It was an invaluable workshop with tremendous positive feedback.

The Winners were:

  1. Mouricia White - 1st Place Winner of the Henry George Clark Book Scholarship, donated by MAHS alumna Judith Falloon Reid. This will cover $400USD of college textbooks for Mouricia!

  2. Shantel Mullings - 2nd Place Winner of the MAHS Central Florida Book Award. This will cover $200USD of college textbooks for Shantel!
