While South Burlington Schools may be closed for in person learning for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year, clubs and student groups have continued to meet through a variety of online platforms. In a recent meeting of the Coalition for Community Service, an idea was brought forth to create a thank you video to honor students' personal heroes during this pandemic. The Coalition found their enthusiastic volunteer in Anna Borrazzo '20 who just happens to be passionate about creating and editing videos. She even has plans to attend UConn next year to study marketing and is considering a career that incorporates video making such as commercial production.
In order to generate interest in the project, Borrazzo reached out to students via social media and through NEO message in addition to engaging Principal Patrick Burke and having him send a message to students. "The goal was to get as many people to participate as possible!" Borrazzo wrote, "It was also just a great opportunity to let the community members who are helping out know that they are greatly appreciated."
Mission accomplished. We hope everyone enjoys this inspirational video!
