The dictionary I looked at while thinking about this article had two definitions for the word “winning.” Definition 2:” attractive; endearing,” provides some food for thought. When the attractive and endearing definition is applied to the word winning, we acknowledge that winning can happen in athletics, arts, academics, service and personal behavior. I like to be around winners. Who doesn’t? Being around attractive and endearing people makes us better people.
Shorecrest has a longstanding relationship with the Guardian ad Litem Foundation. The Guardian ad Litem Foundation of Tampa Bay provides advocacy and support for abused, abandoned or neglected children in the Guardian ad Litem Program of Pinellas and Pasco Counties. For more than 20 years, the Gift Drive has been the school’s signature service event with participation from Shorecrest families at every grade level. Upper School students formed the Guardian ad Litem Service Club in 2014. Nearly 100 high school students volunteer on behalf of the children year-round. A number of Shorecrest parents and community members also volunteer as Guardian ad Litem advocates.

It is the nation's largest peer-led leadership organization through which participants develop ways of understanding complex relations between self and systems with regard to race, class, gender, sexual orientation, physical ability/disability, and other lived cultural experiences. We invite you to join us for the second session of the 2018-19 school year.
