The Riverside County Fair Housing Council honored seven community leaders, activists and volunteers at its 12th annual Champions for Justice awards banquet Thursday, April 3.
North High School’s International Baccalaureate Diploma program and students were also recognized by the Fair Housing Council of Riverside County, Inc. as “Champions on the Rise” at the council’s April 3 Champions of Justice banquet. Champions on the Rise are defined as students under 18 on a path to give back to the community and better themselves. The Council has recognized both of our city’s IB programs (North and Norte Vista) because of contributions the IB program and IB students have made to the community.
Central to the IB Diploma program is Creativity, Action, and Service (CAS). The CAS requirement is a fundamental part of the program and takes seriously the importance of life outside the world of scholarship, providing a refreshing counterbalance to academic studies. Students are expected to be involved in CAS activities each week during the two years of the Diploma program and are encouraged to reflect on their CAS activities on a regular basis.
The Riverside CountyFair Housing Council represents seizing our destiny’s intelligent growth within our community. It offers community leaders and students the opportunity to develop outstanding qualities that will prepare them for future endeavors while improving quality of life.
