The mission of Communities In Schools is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.

Dancing with the High Point Stars

savethedate-pdfCommunities In Schools of High Point, Inc. is excited about our seventh annual signature fundraising event, “Dancing with the High Point Stars,” and we want you to be a part of this venture. 2017 Dancing with the High Point Stars is scheduled for Saturday, February 25, 2017 at 7:00 pm at the High Point Country Club.  Once again, the professional dancers from Fred Astaire Dance Studio will ensure that our celebrities will excite and entertain.  We are thrilled to have the following stars to entertain us: Katherine Covington (Community Volunteer), Matt Cromer (First Bank), Lisa Hawley (Southern Roots Restaurant & Catering), Sims Hinds (Dilworth Advisors/HKS World Events), Joe Hubay (High Point Jewelers), Kacy Lee (Miss High Point 2016), Jane Liebscher (United Way of Greater High Point), Kandi Mussallem (YMCA), Amos Quick (Calvary Baptist Church), and Clinton Wison (Guilford County Schools).

Our goal is to raise $60,000 to continue providing programs and services to students who attend some of High Point’s schools that have the highest free and/or reduced lunch percentages, a federal indicator of poverty. As a nationally accredited dropout prevention program, Communities In Schools of High Point, Inc. has a 28-year history of addressing risk factors that, if ignored, ultimately lead to students dropping out of school. To that end, last year we were able to provide services to over 7,477 students with the assistance of over 1,200 volunteers. Now, more than ever, it is crucial that we help students realize the importance of a high school diploma as the foundation for future endeavors, but we cannot do it without community support. This fundraising event helps ensure the continuing legacy of student success in our community that began under the leadership of founder, William “Bill” Horney Jr.
