SAIC’s Parents Council Helps Support Healthy Minds and Bodies

March 15, 2015

SAIC’s Parents Council awarded a grant to the School’s Wellness Center to improve the emotional, psychological, and social wellbeing of students. Liz Ellerton, parent of Lucy Ellerton (BFA 2015), aptly voiced a view that is widely shared by parents who want to see their daughters and sons reach their full potential. “My daughter’s experience at SAIC has been so stimulating, exciting, and nurturing that I want to be as involved as possible. I joined the SAIC Parents Council and have taken a special interest in the Wellness Center because it is important to support the emotional, mental, and social wellbeing of our students. They need a positive and caring environment to explore their creativity, take risks, and thrive—and SAIC provides just that!”
