When the Partners in Education Advisory Board envisioned the “See, Think, Build” Award, it was as one that is not given year after year, but as one that is presented when something spectacular is accomplished. The Fort Smith Roundtable and the Golden Knights Program is just this kind of “See, Think, Build” Award winner. Mentors work with individual students, students that with the persistent guidance of their mentors learn to work with and learn from one another in a self-governing organization that begins in upper elementary and continues through junior high school. When these young men reach Northside High School, they are ready to participate in the school community as “Young Brothers Leading” These young men then serve as role models for the younger Golden Knights. The Fort Smith Roundtable has organized and nurtures the growth and development of a new generation of leaders.
Congratulations to the Gentlemen of the Fort Smith Rountable, Golden Knights, Young Brothers Leading, and representatives from Spradling, Northside, Kimmons, and Howard on receiving the 2016 Chariman’s “See, Think, Build” Award.
