‘Slope Empowers Its Young Women
Girl Up Club Encourages Girls to Rise Up

Sunnyslope’s Mary Walther founded a chapter of the United Nations Girl Up Club this year. According to its website, this club empowers girls all over the world to “develop the leadership skills necessary to make a positive difference in the lives of girls everywhere.” The group engaged in a variety of activities to accomplish this like hosting guest speakers, practicing team building, and exploring scholarships available for young women.

They also won the Diamondbacks Challenge, earning a whopping $2,500 for the club! With this money, Mrs. Walther purchased Chromebooks that the girls can use after school or anytime they need a place to work. Along with the award money, the Diamondbacks provided 500 Diamondbacks tickets for the girls, their families, and Sunnyslope staff. What a fun, community-oriented activity!
