At a recent staff retreat, FSH staffers had the opportunity to get a little creative (something practiced often around here!).
A canvas for each staff member –sat ready on tables throughout The Commons at Stoddard Johnston Scholar House. Paint of different colors were at each station. Instructions were given to begin painting, and that was all they were told. The project was for staff members to complete their individual canvas, using any variation of colors. At the end of the day, the Art Therapist started to work her magic. As the staff stood back, they started to see that all the canvases joined together, to create a bigger picture. It serves as a visual reminder that each staff member, volunteer and participant contribute a unique set of skills. When everyone joins together, they make Family Scholar House truly special. No one can do it alone–and now, the mural hangs on the wall of Louisville Scholar House as a daily reminder of the supportive community that empowers our families to succeed.
Last year alone, 1,351 volunteers walked through the doors of our residential campuses, every single one of them a valuable contributor to the work that happens here. With all of us working together, we are changing lives, families and communities through education. Thank you for being an important piece of our community.
