2017 High School Groups of the Year
Each year, we take time at our national conferences to recognize our student group’s greatest achievements. This past year, we hit a huge milestone by reaching over 1,000 Students for Life groups on middle school, high school, college, med, and law campuses. Thank you all for your hard work and dedication to spreading the pro-life message at your school and contributing to this nationwide cultural change. We are the most pro-life generation to date and you are the ones responsible for this amazing accomplishment.
Congratulations to our 2017 High School Groups of the year!
Starting a new group at the high school level comes with its challenges, but this group started strong right out of the gate. The students at Huntingtown High School held SFLA training’s, attended local marches, prayed outside of abortion facilities, supported their local pregnancy resource center, and participated in some of the most influential activism events in our movement. This team of awesome students was part of a small group in the DC area that helped pray throughout the night at the Supreme Court before the Whole Women’s Health case was heard, and they helped pull off our #ProLifeGen Rally the day before the East Coast National Conference.
HIGH SCHOOL GROUP OF THE YEAR: S.A.L.T. LIFE AT BENET ACADEMY
Our Group of the Year for 2016 never ceases to amaze us at SFLA! This group participates in Prayer & Pancakes, where they go to pray at Planned Parenthood on a Saturday morning and then go to breakfast. They hosted a school-wide Pro-Life Assembly and multiple speakers, including their Regional Coordinator. Last October, S.A.L.T Life at Benet Academy did a Rosary for Life, sidewalk chalked, stood in the entry of their school with pro-life signs and chants as students were dropped off for school, and they also got super creative and hosted a fundraiser called “Nacho life to take.”
Five years ago, this group had seven members attend the March for Life, but this year they brought over 100 participants. Way to go!
