@ChairRandall is a former Chair of MSAAC. Let's join her in celebrating creativity and determination. #BelieveInYouth

Last night was the best ever! When my mom first told me Mrs. Randall wanted me to make her an outfit I was shocked. I had never made an outfit for anyone but myself but I wasn’t gonna turn down the opportunity! After meeting her and learning her style, I sketched what I thought would be perfect for her. She loved the sketch! We decided on colors and then I used my time in California to find the perfect fabric and notions for her design. She LOVED IT! I am so honored that she took the chance to trust me to deliver her outfit for such an important night. I knew all of Loudoun County would be watching and I was determined to make her shine! Thank you Chair Phyllis Randall for believing in me! Thank you for my letter of recognition and appreciation, and thank you for my first dollar! I will always cherish this project!

Feel free to share!

You have so many good ideas. I love how you fought against segregation. You insprie me to fight as well. You did a fantastic job explaining everything. You are my role model, and thank you once again." from an LCPS student #LCPSDiversity

"Dear Mr. Fisher,
You inspired me to stick up for others and stand for what's right. Your words made a connection with me. A month ago I was in a protest for a man who got shot in his backyard. You did the greatest job ever speaking to us." from LCPS 4th grader #LCPSDiversity

05/25/2018

"Dear Mr. Fisher,
You did an amazing job explaining segregation. It seems interesting to work to stop segregation. When I grow up, I would like to work to stop segregation by the power of sports." from an LCPS student to Mr. Wendall Fisher #LCPSDiversity

"Dear Mr. Fisher,
I loved the part when the kids at the white school reached out and got kids from the black school and brought them back. Now I know how important it is to stand up for what's right and to try to stop what's not right." from an LCPS student #LCPSDiversity

05/23/2018

"Dear Mr. Fisher,
Thank you for explaining that stuff about civil rights. I liked how you made it an experience like us moving tables was an example of segregation. It was the best event that happened at school. You did an awesome job!" - from an LCPS student #LCPSDiversity
