Greenbrier Junior High community mentors, parents, teachers, students, and administrators have worked to develop Wonder Women and Iron Men clubs, including guest speakers, community experiences, and life lessons that support growing a heart of service in each of our students. Recently, Greenbrier Junior High's 9th grade Wonder Women took a service field trip to Soul Food Cafe in Conway. Their goal was to love and serve the many guests that depend weekly on the help of the Soul Food Cafe Mission for food, clothing, haircuts, and daily living supplies. Over the course of the day, thirty-eight students prepared and served hot lunches, washed and dried dishes, packed food boxes for pick-up, helped guests select and take home clothes and supplies, and listened as many guests shared their stories. The participants worked hard without ever complaining. In fact, there were many times you could see or hear the joy the Wonder Women felt as they were serving. Upon returning to school, several reflected on the trip with hearts of gratitude and a passion to do more! As a school community, we look forward to watching our students continue to grow in compassion and service to others as they prepare for college and career!
