BASIC Scholars Stepping Up

At Mission Dolores Academy, our BASIC Fund Scholars know the importance of getting involved in their academic community and giving back.

Pictured above, BASIC Scholars Nathan, Daniela, and Ramon decided to run for office in Student Council serve the MDA student body as Commissioner of Events, 8th Grade Class Representative, and 7th Grade Class Representative.

"I decided to step up in leadership because I was doing very well in school. I thought that I, too, could become a leader,” said Ramon. “Mission Dolores Academy has taught me that you don't need to be flashy to be a leader. All you need is to be good, work hard, be yourself, and share it with everyone around you."

Joining Student Council is just one of the many ways our Scholars get involved and give back to their educational communities. Know an exemplary Scholar with a great story in your school? Let us know at stories@basicfund.org.
