Collegiate Celebrates Inaugural Honors Council
Foundation Academies celebrated our inaugural Collegiate Honors Council with a white glove pinning ceremony highlighting dedication to “the three Cs” – civility, commitment, and consistency.
Our Collegiate learning community is grounded in the Honor Code, which clearly states our “commitment to character.”
That means behavior is more about attitude and spirit, personal integrity and genuine concern for others – rather than rules and regulations. That means belief in the power of one to influence many and leading by example.
This belief is affirmed by FA’s culture of personal empowerment and requirement that all scholars and staff give back to the community.
“We lead by example to be the change we want to see in our community and world at large,” the Code states.
Each Council member pledged to:
- Contribute to a peaceful environment of respect and encourage inclusiveness
- Take responsibility and understand that I am accountable for my behavior
- Practice respect and integrity at all times
- Affirm our FAmily as a culture of support
- Execute my responsibilities and all that I do with a fierce dedication to excellence
This inaugural Honor Council includes students from grades 9-12, with James Muse as its chairperson Members include Princess Abdullah, Alejandro Aponte, Sheguyma Bazile, Duran Chukumba, Paris Clark, JanCarlo Corado, Akayla Cromwell, Tauri Garner, Aundrea Grizzle, Paris Hughes, Michael Leon, Anirah Lopez-Edge, Halibeyri Lucero, Noah Merritt, Favour Ngige, Joshua Oriz, Amy Supulveda, Brianna Telles-Fernandez and Jedidah Worrell.
After receiving their Honors Council pins from Faculty Advisor Matthew Triolo and Collegiate Deans of Culture Francisca DeLeon and John Paxton Jr., each member signed a ledger that will be kept and shared with future Councils.
