Evan Johnson is a civic-minded individual who has initiated many “out of the box” activities in their community. Their biggest project was establishing a chapter, which is an organization that supports students by stopping the stigma associated with mental health. Evan is also the author of a book called “Dear Younger Me” which offers advice and support for younger students. Evan actively seeks solutions for concerns evident in their community and school, which includes supporting individuals struggling with mental health and food insecurities.

Food For Thought

Food For Thought is a program that provides take-home care packages for students who are facing food insecurity. These packages include nutritious food items to help sustain students over the weekends. While there are programs in place at school to help fill the need during the week, students also need access to nutritious food during weekends. You cannot learn on an empty stomach. Food For Thought provides students with the sustenance they need to learn and be healthy.
