New Manchester High School's Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) Chapter has successfully secured a $10,000 grant from Lead4Change, a national student leadership program.

The funding will support New Manchester’s innovative project aimed at providing essential support to newly hired DCSS international teachers.

This marks the FBLA chapter’s second year in a row winning this esteemed competition, according to NMHS FBLA adviser Latoya Thomas.

As part of the project, the NMHS FBLA students identified and addressed the unique needs of newly hired international educators as they adjusted to teaching in the United States.

The project focused on increasing retention rates and providing vital support to integrate new members into the community, Thomas said. Initiatives included coordinating transportation to and from school, organizing drives to collect coats and clothing for climate adjustment and hosting an international teacher brunch and community social.

"We are deeply grateful for our teachers' dedication and commitment. Our hope is that our contributions, no matter how small, have made a meaningful difference in their lives," said Haley Ware, Service Project Chair & Chapter Secretary.
