Cherokee Trail High School inspires a culture of "be kind."

Be Kind Kids

Cherokee Trail High School (CTHS) is creating a culture of ‘be kind.’ To kick off 2024, the Be Kind Club started a 21-day kindness challenge. Instead of a New Year's resolution, they encourage everyone to participate by creating a habit of spreading kindness.

“It's awesome to see people in our community getting involved and excited,” senior Sade Davis said. “I love seeing people wearing ‘be kind.’ shirts at the gym, the mall, and so many other places. And these challenges are encouraging people to spread and practice kindness, be great humans, and be kind.”
