Midwest Academy’s Organization of the Month

August 06, 2007

by Rochelle Davis, HSC Executive Director

It’s not an Academy Award, but we’re proud just the same: and we’d like to thank Midwest Academy for acknowledging the Healthy Schools Campaign as their organization of the month. 

As mentioned in the organizational profile, I am a graduate of Midwest Academy training programs — and so are many Healthy Schools Campaign staff. Mark Bishop, Guillermo Gomez and Claire Marcy have all been involved in Midwest Academy’s training, and HSC uses the Academy’s unique model of organizing in our program work.  The lessons learned from Midwest Academy have helped us in our efforts to advocate for policies that support healthy school environments.
