Nobel Peace Prize winner inspires Maxwell, vice versa
Elementary students at Maxwell embraced a positive message from Kailash Satyarthi, co-recipient of the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize, who spent an interactive hour sharing the heart of his global efforts as a champion for children.
“We should love others and make friends,” Satyarthi said as he sat on the floor among the youngsters, exchanging high fives. “If somebody fights with you, you have to think how to make him a friend. If you can forgive, that’s the beginning. If you can be good to them, that’ll make the world a better place.”
A human rights activist from India, Satyarthi has led the movement to end child slavery and exploitative child labor for nearly four decades. His visit to Maxwell Spanish Immersion Magnet School coincided with other speaking dates in Lexington. Full article
Young Achievers at Maxwell
"Young Achievers" is a national program with national awards being presented each year by the International Leadership Network (ILN). ILN is a non-profit, charitable, 501(c) (3) organization started in 1990.
The local "Young Achievers" program was started in 1990 by Holifield Photography and is affiliated with the International Leadership Network. They began photographing the 8th graders from the School for the Creative and Performing Arts in 1990. In 2002 the program was expanded to all elementary and middle schools in Fayette County.
In 2012, over 1000 students were nominated to the local program from 54 elementary and middle schools in Fayette County.
We are proud to have photographs of nine of our “Young Achievers” at Maxwell displayed in our front hallway! Please step in and enjoy the beautiful photographs and help us recognize the achievements of our students!
