"Bright Beginnings"

Submitted on Tuesday, August 30, 2016

The first few days of the Dunham Quick Path program have been amazing and have offered many challenges that I am ready to undertake. On the first day of class on that bright and sunny day I was greeted at the door by Sean - the manager of the Dunham Quick path program - welcoming us to the school and getting us pumped up for what was to come. When I walked down the hallway of the Academic Professional Center I realized that this isn't high school anymore. In the first few days of the program we did a lot of team building exercises that helped us develop our leadership skills and get to know one another. On the second day of school, the class was split into groups to find locations around the school on a scavenger hunt and take photos around campus, helping us get a better understanding of where everything is. In another team building activity we were asked to build the biggest tower we could using only limited resources. We did so by using our team skills and splitting up the work among ourselves. This program is starting to feel like a family. Because we are all in this together, we can all help out one another for any given task. I see very bright things in the future for this program and the people in it.
