Enrollment in the Washington Middle School for Girls prompted community members Michea’lla and her mother Rolanda to join THEARC nearly three years ago.  Currently a high school freshman at the National Cathedral School, Michea’lla regularly attends the Boys & Girls Club at THEARC to complete homework. She also still visits our in-house Children’s Health Center to receive medical care.  This stellar student became involved in a number of notable activities this year including Community Service Day 2012 at The White House’s Fall Garden, as well as serving as a key spokesperson of the Smoke Free DC public awareness campaign. Both opportunities were accessible to Michaea’lla through her involvement at THEARC.  Rolanda is a valuable asset to THEARC family as an active parent and employee.  She now leads the Community Links division of the Family Engagement Action Team at the Washington Middle School for Girls and acts as their official liaison to the Boys & Girls Club Robotics Program.
