Blair Academy is a caring community that takes pride in participating in community service projects both on and off campus.
As former English teacher Michael Schloat once said during an address to the student body on this particular topic:
“There is nothing more important in life than helping other people. Talk with Mrs. [Kaye] Evans, advisor to Blair’s community service group, about her passion for community service. Hear her tell you about all the myriad ways you can get involved in helping the greater community outside of Blair. No one here is more sensitive to the needs of those around her than she…There is no limit to the opportunities each of you has to serve the needs of those around you, and there is no amount of help that is too small to make a difference. Just make the leap and see what happens."
The video below, produced by a Blair student, gives a glimpse of a recent community-service trip for Habitat for Humanity, which brought students to the state of Delaware in the summer of 2013.
