This is why my high school was named after him. And why Cesar's Closet was proud to name their center after him. It is as though I am making Cesar Chavez's legacy live on by volunteering at Cesar Closet. At Cesar's Closet I organize the clothes that is donated and hang them up by size and color for easy access.

After moving his family to McFarland, Coach White was able to become an effective leader in his community. With the help from his students, their families, colleagues, and members from the community he learned how to be warm, empathetic, and genuine.
Near closing time I would make sure that everything was in the right place, neat, and immaculately prepared for the upcoming day. Although not required for volunteers, I would do my best to give honest advice and guidance to customers. Along with that, I would learn skills that most volunteers did not care to learn and taught them to the employees while giving sincere advice on how things could run smoother. The most humbling part of the experience was seeing faces of children of less-fortunate families; they always had such sweet sweeping smiles to face the uncertain the future. And it was because of those faces I went back day-after-day to help out in any way I
I was such a good time and was really nice to see all of the college students tailgating with their whole family. It was a huge reunion between a lot of families in the Oakton area. On top of it all, Virginia Tech won! One week had flown by and as Sunday came around it was time to leave. I said my goodbyes and headed back to Virginia Tech around one with my roommate, McKenzie.
At first, it was just a way to get my community service hours, but the kids later won my heart and there was no turning back. It was a place of unity, a place of hope. It brought people from all over the city of Fitchburg together. Volunteers, such as myself, would come from everywhere to help, the high school kept in touch through their mentors, and the kids would bring different friends along. That unity, that Fitchburg unity, was shown everywhere: at football games, at school events, and even at the grocery store.
I remember going home that day and telling my mom all about my first day at my new school. I think, for the first time since my Dad had been laid off I felt a peace. I felt the fear that I’d felt over this drastic change in my life dissipate and vanish as I realized that we were going to be okay, that I was going to enjoy living in Dewitt. Though I would miss Texas and all the things I’d left behind, I knew that in my new home, I would be happy and I’ve been happy living in Dewitt ever
I offered my time during the next semester to help work further on the yearbook. So for the past two months I’ve been revising and adding little things to the yearbook. For me personally, I enjoyed working on the yearbook. Helping create something that future students can reflect back on to remember little things about school. In these past two weeks, I managed to let someone change into my lane, made a fabulous ice cream cake, and have been volunteering help to finish my school yearbook.
Narrative Essay One day I was just at school I went to Carbon Valley Academy at the time, I remember that I was in art class with my friends Talea ,Jillian ,Anastasia ,Charlotte, and Allie. The project that we working on was our last one as being 5th graders , we were putting our hands in the color of paint that we liked and then for the school we put our handprints on a garden barrel. I got picked up from my grandmother that day and she took me to her house after school like she had done everyday ever since kindergarten. When I got to her house I opened up my friday folder and got all of my homework and ate my ice cream while working on it at the dining table. I did this everyday
I found some of my other friends and started talking to them as well. Once the bell rang we all hustled to our new classes, because we didn’t want to be late. I had Ms. Yarrow, Mr.Lee, and Mrs.Shizzle. The first day went by great and I had amazing teachers with a lot of my friends in my classes. When I got home that day I ran off the bus all the way down to our house and was so excited to tell my parents about my day.
I am polite, humble, and respectful to others. I have a passion for helping others and making their life better. For that reason, I decided to become a Marauder Ambassador. By being an ambassador, I introduce freshmen and new students to the school campus. When I started school in the United States, an ambassador welcomed me and familiarized me with the school; therefore, I became a Marauder Ambassador to give back and serve the community that welcomed me when I came here.
Snow stated later in the same interview, “Having the ability to mentor someone is a feeling you don’t get any other way. There is something about helping someone, knowing that you’re helping guide someone else that’s indescribable. It’s humbling and it’s also rewarding” (Snow 2). Knowing that I can make a difference in the life of a “little” means the world to me; seeing her improve her life and succeed could only give me even more motivation to spread my guidance and dedication and to reach out to other kids in need of a healthy, stable
Through the years I was able to develop into a motivated individual. As I found myself feeling more compassionate towards other people, the less I cared how they viewed me. I learned to love school. I started to make friends became an active student in the school community. Confidence is the key to academic success.
