(10/31/19) There’s a Dignity Revolution happening at Blaine High School (BHS), and the goal is to equip students with the tools to stand up for the value of every person, to have the courage to do what’s right, and to have respect for themselves and others.
The message of student-empowerment that’s at the core of Dignity Revolution comes from Bob Lenz, a nationally recognized speaker and author, who spoke to the entire freshman and sophomore classes at BHS on Oct. 25. He explored issues like bullying, self-harm, suicide and substance abuse while using personal stories, honesty, and humor. See photos from the event.
In addition to Lenz’s powerful message, students also had the chance to be entertained by AJ the Animated Illusionist, who provided an interactive and light-hearted performance of magic, illusion, and comedy.
BHS will build from the opening assembly with activities planned throughout the school year using Dignity Revolution materials and programming. In addition, Bengal Pride upperclassmen will receive training in the activities that promote this growth and bring the lessons to younger students throughout the school year during BHS’ advisory time.
