Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School recently established the ‘Walker Way’ initiative. The Walker Way is based on the four pillars of Courage, Compassion, Community, and Collaboration. These pillars were exemplified by our school’s namesake, Maggie Lena Walker.
- Courage refers to the demonstration of fortitude, persistence, and integrity when confronting challenges. It is a vital strength, requiring determination. Our students are problem-solvers who aren’t afraid to face a challenge head-on.
- Compassion is possessing a sense of empathy for the stuggles of others and a willingness to serve. We emphasize the importance of caring for the people around us and working to make circumstances better for others.
- Community means understanding and embracing differences, but also acknowledging and celebrating the connectedness of the human experience. Having students from many different counties and backgrounds, Maggie L. Walker students emphasize the importance of creating a community in which people can connect and collaborate while in school and in their communities.
- Collaboration is harmoniously working together and using critical thinking skills to achieve a common goal. When everyone contributes and works towards solutions, wonderful things can be accomplished. We must all listen and work together to hear from different perspectives in order to best address a problem or a goal.
