She’s the First Starts Up at LBHS
She’s the First is a not-for-profit organization that sponsors education for girls in the developing world. Laguna Beach High School sophomores and juniors Regan Caraher, Christine Johnson, Callista Wulff, Shea Metz and Carmen Nichols have organized a new chapter at Laguna Beach High School and are looking for new members.
They met recently to discuss goals for the year and to come up with creative ways to raise funds for the cause. She’s the First LBHS will donate all of its fundraising profits to sponsor students at a school in South America. For underprivileged girls, the impact of a sponsorship can be life changing; most will be the first in their families to graduate from high school, the organizers say.
Tammy Tibbetz, founder and president of She’s The First, which has established 100 chapters mostly on college campuses, is featured in the September article “20 Women Changing the World” in the monthly fashion magazine Marie Claire.
Participants in She’s the First will receive LBHS accredited community service hours. The chapter will meet monthly and can be followed on Facebook at She’s the First LBHS or Twitter at STF_lbhs.
