Student picked for SAVE board

October 28, 2012 

Michelle Collie, a freshman at South Granville High School, is one of six students selected to serve during this school year on the national youth advisory board of SAVE – Students Against Violence Everywhere.

Over the summer she attended a National Youth Leadership Institute, where she learned how to be a presenter and spokesperson for the group, which aims to combat violence through crime prevention, conflict management and service projects. At the institute, she was elected by her peers to serve as the board’s historian.

After participating with SAVE at her middle school, East Wake Academy, Michelle planned to start a chapter at South Granville High. The Youth Advisory Board meetings will shape action plans for SAVE chapters nationwide.
