ICSOS’ ONE MILLION ACTS OF KINDNESS PROGRAM
By Seth Conners
Inyo County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Lisa Fontana has introduced the ICSOS’ One Million Acts of Kindness Program. She said that the idea is to recognize acts of kindness seen all over the county. There were three motivating factors for the program she said:
- She has met the kindest people since moving here in July.
- A high school student said she has experience hate at her school.
- A plea from the State level to promote harmony, because schools are seeing an uptick in bullying of minorities since the presidential election.
Fontana said residents are encouraged to record acts of kindness by visiting www.inyokindness.us and clicking a button. The goal is to shine a spotlight on local students, staff, community members, and partner organizations who display simple acts of kindness everyday. It is also their desire to encourage even more kindness and civility as they strive to log One Million Acts of Kindness by the end of this school year.
