Fifth-graders take the lead on Changemaker tradition

Fifth-graders began the first-ever Changemaker Club meeting by defining what it means to be a changemaker. “We believe a changemaker is a positive influence and an inspiring leader. Changemakers try to impact the world in a positive way, never give up, and care about equality,” members said. The new club empowers students already familiar with the changemaker traditions, to become leaders and think about other people and situations, according to Lotspeich librarian Lori Suffield. In preparation for an upcoming mid-October Lotspeich assembly, club members held a lively discussion to determine what and how they’ll share information about their new club with their classmates.  They also discussed the potential roles of changemakers on campus, from morning announcements to service projects.
