The Harbour School has been recognized as a Lead2Feed Certified School. Only 10 schools and youth organizations have received this honor. Harbour was recognized for inspiring community service and its demonstration of student leadership. Through the efforts of Harbour students and staff, students have performed thousands of hours of community service working toward alleviating hunger in the community. Their efforts have earned $50,000 for Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland.
Siri Llamas, a special educator at The Harbour School at Baltimore, was recognized by the Lead2Feed Student Leadership Program as Teacher of the Week in early February. Her leadership has assisted her special needs students to provide educational materials and resources that provide practical ways to combat hunger in local communities in 17 states and nine foreign countries.
Lead2Feed was started three years ago, and since its inception, more than 1 million students from 3,500 schools across the country have participated. The Harbour School is the first and only school to win twice.
The Harbour School is a nonpublic school serving students ages 6 to 21 that have been diagnosed as having learning disabilities, high functioning autism, Asperger’s syndrome and other health impairments.
