Vote for the Sandhills Students for Life to Win SFLA 2021-2022 Best New Group of the Year

As we’ve come to the close of the 2021-2022 school year, Students for Life of America (SFLA) will be giving out three end-of-year awards for Best New Group, Best High School Group, and Best College Group—and you get to help us choose which groups deserve these awards! Read below to find out about one of the schools that has been nominated to receive Best New Group of the Year: The Sandhills Students for Life! 

The Sandhills Students for Life group was founded in the Fall of 2021 on the campus of Sandhills Community College (SCC) in Pinehurst, North Carolina. The group has since grown to encompass more than 20 members who are consistently involved in protecting the preborn and promoting the pro-life message in the community and on campus.

Despite being a new group, Sandhill Students for Life has jumped headfirst into the movement and already taken an active role in the new Campaign for Abortion Free Cities initiative in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, going above and beyond in all five of SFLA’s Pillars of Activism.  

Other pro-life activities in which the Sandhills Students for Life participated included:  

  • Attending the National Pro-Life March and National Pro-Life Summit in Washington D.C.  
  • Attending the North Carolina March for Life 
  • Attending and raising money through a virtual 5k run to support a local pregnancy resource center 
  • Hosting SFLA’s Fall Tour (See Me Now) and Spring Tour (No Woman Stands Alone) on campus
