Claire strives to ensure that Moreland Middle School is a community that practices inclusivity every day. As the leader of the Inclusivity Club/Human Rights Club she brings together a large gathering of diverse students to discuss issues. They address problems faced by marginalized students and explore how to provide a nurturing space for all. She is informed, passionate, and has an innate sense of justice. Her leadership brings students together to plan activities that engage other students to build a supportive and accepting community. One example of their collaborative work was the Day of Silence, designed to support the LGBTQ community and raise awareness about bullying and mental health issues.
“Middle school is a crazy time for kids and this doesn’t always happen at all schools, but through Claire’s dedication, support and leadership of the Inclusivity Club the past three years, Moreland Middle School has become a school where no students or staff will feel marginalized for their differences. Claire’s actions have led to greater acceptance at school and has made it a place where students feel safer, more connected, and more accepted. Her leadership and courage are an inspiration to both her peers and to staff, and will have a positive impact on our community for years to come.” – Jackson Roue, student
