Our SAVE Shining Star for the month of February is Khalandra Williams. Khalandra is a senior at White Oak High School and consistently goes above and beyond with her leadership skills and dedication to her chapter. Khalandra demonstrates these skills along with her SAVE chapter by going on monthly field trips to mentor at Hunters Creek Elementary School. She and her fellow SAVE members plan, teach and execute lesson plans for the HCE SAVE chapter. These lessons include speakers, role plays, arts and crafts and games with a focus on conflict management, peer mediation and anti-bullying. A recent example of her involvement in her chapter was Miss Williams’ performance with the SAVE orchestra in Pollocksville Presbyterian Church’s Christmas Cantata on December 13.
Khalandra is active in her SAVE chapter and regularly volunteers for committees. She exhibits a high level of compassion for all students regardless of gender, race, age or sexual orientation. In her time with SAVE, Khalandra has helped attract and recruit students for the club, making it one of the most diverse on campus. She was the winner of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholarship and on March 12 she and members of the White Oak High School step team will be performing at the National SAVE Summit. Congratulations Khalandra Williams on being a SAVE Shining Star!
