We at Mavericks High, with the sincerest of hearts, are delighted to congratulate the Class of 2012!!! Our students have worked diligently. They showed us what perseverance looks like, as they pushed past the obstacles that tried to impede their success—until they ultimately arrived at the finish line. Over the span of eight graduations, we proudly watched 573 students gleaming in satin white robes, arrive as our students, but leave as our graduates! We laughed, cried, and beamed with pride alongside their family and friends, to congratulate them on this great and momentous achievement. The course for our students does not stop here however. We are pleased to announce that an overwhelming majority of our graduates will be continuing on into post-secondary education institutions! We wish our graduates all the best! The future only gets brighter for them from here!
On Wednesday, April 25, Mavericks High of Osceola hosted its first ever, blood drive. Together with Florida’s Blood Centers (FBC), the event was a great success. Students both volunteered and participated as donors for the event. At the end of the event there were 87 prospective donors that registered and 64 units of blood collected. This contributed to a total of 192 lives that are expected to be saved in Central Florida Hospitals as a result. We are so proud of our students for making a difference in their communities by contributing to their community’s blood supply.
According to Florida’s Blood Centers, every two seconds someone needs blood and about 1 in 7 people entering the hospital need blood. Despite this however, of the 38% who are eligible to donate, only 10% actually do. It takes only one pint of blood to actually save up to three lives. FBC also estimates that if all blood donors gave three times a year, blood shortages would be a rare event. Moreover, it estimates that if only one more percent of all Americans would give blood, blood shortages would disappear for the foreseeable future.
Together, Mavericks High of Osceola and Florida’s Blood Centers are saving lives!
We are pleased to announce a new partnership between Mavericks High of Osceola and Nike, Inc.! Nike, Inc. who has the motto, “A Shoe. A Company. A Journey,” has chosen to take us along for the ride on this journey to success with them. The Nike-Mavericks Project, established in November 2011, was formed to help provide employment opportunities for our students.
In its pilot form, this project was initiated when Nike came to the campus and interviewed thirty students of which they selected six. Those six then continued on in an 8-week pilot program. During this period, the students were paired with mentors from Nike who taught and introduced them to different aspects of the retail business; in addition to different life skills. Upon the completion of the program, four of the students were offered full time employment with Nike.
Due to the great success of this pilot program, Nike and Mavericks High of Osceola have turned what was just a relationship, into a bona fide partnership geared for success. Nike has already requested to make their visits twice a year. In addition, they have secured 25-30 positions at five (of their) different stores throughout Osceola and Orange County for Mavericks’ students. This is sure to be the beginning of many great things to come from this great partnership.
