D6 Student Health Advisory Council (SHAC)
SHAC is a group composed of high schoolers from around District 6 that are focused on combating health issues in the community. SHAC began in 2018 and has since been growing and improving.
Current members serving are from: Greeley Central High School, Greeley West High School, Northridge High School, Early College Academy, and University Schools.
This mural was created by students in the District 6 Student Health Advisory Council to promote mental health in our community through spreading messages of hope, help and strength. The mural represents eight areas of strength (Family Support, Positive Friends, Mentors, Healthy Activities, Generosity, Spirituality, Physical Health, and Mental Health) that build resiliency and lift us up when we need. Please share pictures of you being lifted up by our wings of hope! #GREELEYSOURCESOFSTRENGTH #D6WINGSOFHOPE
