Emilio Barbosa, is a 9th grade student and president of the Boys for Girl Up Club. As president of the Club, he has developed his leadership skills and expanded the Club’s efforts by reaching out to people in his community. Through his initiative he was able to raise an additional $1,200.00. This initiative reflects his growth as a globally-minded, communicative and caring student. The Club helps create awareness of the issues faced by many girls in third-world countries. For two years, the Club has sponsored the education of three girls in Haiti. We are so proud of Emilio’s work with the Club and the outstanding character traits which distinguish him and represent our school so well. We are also proud of Darlene Cosme, his mentor. She has awakened a genuine interest in the members of the Boys for Girl Up Club to work towards creating equal opportunities in girls around the world. A big thanks to the Boys for Girl Up Club’s effort to make the world a more equal place.
