Club Spotlight: Young Women's Empowerment

September 27, 2017

The Donoho School is excited to introduce our newest club, Young Women's Empowerment.  This new club stirs students to uplift and promote the value of women leaders in our world.   Last spring, current sophomore Sarah Green approached Ms. Sarah Landrum, faculty, and Mr. Russ Connell, Upper School Director, in hopes to form Young Women's Empowerment.  Sarah submitted the proposal and was excited to hear that her request was approved.

Sarah now serves as the club's president and says she chartered the club to help young women build confidence and expand their reach into the community.  She realized that many young women, including herself, had trouble voicing their opinions because they struggled with confidence.  She is excited to encourage her peers to find their voices and come together to help others.

Trevor Crow, a male member of the club, says there is a humanitarian aspect to Young Women's Empowerment and that we all, as members of society, should work to help each other thrive.

Secretary-Treasurer Campbell Hagan says she believes that Young Women's Empowerment will foster a safe environment to talk about issues that women face in the modern world.  Campbell shares, "I joined because I want to see the young women of Donoho feel proud to be a girl."  Vice President Leydon Orth looks forward to working with her fellow classmates while building self-esteem and continuing a culture of female leaders within the walls of Donoho.  

The Donoho School is excited to see how Young Women's Empowerment will allow our student body to continue encouraging and empowering leadership among our young women.
