Students at North Colchester High School recently had the opportunity to learn about the five pillars of social justice (gender, class, race, abilities, sexual orientation) during Social Justice Day. Students attended a variety of workshops in the morning from various organizations, interest groups and individuals. 

In the afternoon ex-NBA player and motivational speaker, Will Njuko, inspired students with his keynote address. For 25 years Will has been a coach and mentor to youth, teaching them to “Set your feet. Aim high. Follow through. Every day.” Now, through Will2Win, S.A.F.E. is the spark Will uses to ignite the will to win in others through inspirational speaking. As a result, Will has become an inspiration to thousands both in the competitive and non-competitive arenas of life. His journey is a testament of how adversity can be an advantage when one views it with the right perspective. It’s this perspective that garnered his successes both on and off the basketball court.

North Colchester extends their thanks to the presenters for sharing their ideas and experiences with students!
