ASPIRE Project holds leadership week at Halifax CC

The Halifax County and Weldon City Schools Community-Based Abstinence Education Program called ASPIRE, which stands for Abstinence Standards Promote Individual Respect Education provided a week of leadership training to Halifax County middle school students, July 19-22 on the Halifax Community College campus. The ASPIRE Project is funded by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.


According to Coordinator for Project ASPIRE Wayne Anthony, the week provided leadership training to a number of students. “We hope that they will learn leadership skills that will help them be successful at the next level, which is high school and in the real world,” said Anthony. Along with the leadership training, the students were involved in an art class where they completed an abstinence project. They also participated in a public speaking class during the week.
