Every Wednesday, we meet in the chapel to listen to an inspirational speech. We hear students speak of their good and bad experiences and how their lives have changed. We hear poetry and music. Yesterday, Kevin Ramos-Glew, a Spanish teacher, spoke of the importance of mentors in his life. He shared memories of his brother and important lessons he learned from him. He also encouraged us all to learn from our mentors, to be inspired by "the greatness of others."
Here at the Governor's Academy we have many mentors to choose from. Teachers, dorm parents, advisors, coaches, peer advisors, and administrators all mentor students and each other. One of the best parts of this school is the community and how everyone here wants everyone else in the community to succeed.
