Smoky Hill High School visual arts teacher Gayle Brown was honored as an Asset Champion by the Community Asset Project (CAP) during a surprise visit to her classroom on April 23.
Brown was honored, in part, for her support of the Family Wellness Summit T-shirt design contest.
“Ms. Brown has unselfishly offered her students the opportunity to participate each of the three years the Family Wellness Summit existed to be creative and show their talents to the thousands of people who wore their t-shirt design,” said CAP board member Steve Cohen.
One of the SHHS 2014 Teachers of the Year, Brown is now encouraging her students to submit t-shirt design ideas for the 2014 Cherry Creek Schools Fitness Festival, which is also sponsored in part by CAP. The Fitness Festival will be held on Saturday, September 6.
CAP is a non-profit partner of the Cherry Creek School District and positively impacts more than 54,000 students and their families through youth leadership training, Positive Behavior Supports, drug and alcohol abuse prevention, suicide prevention and other important programs.
The Community Asset Project was founded on the 40 developmental assets, which help young people develop into successful and responsible adults. For more information, visit www.assetsconnect.org.
