representing omm at a homecoming parade

Madison Minds Matter showed off their OMM pride at their Homecoming Parade at Madison High School in Vienna, Virginia. Student leaders reached out to their school’s SGA to sign up to walk in the parade, and then promoted the walk on their MMM Instagram and on their Schoology to reach as many folks as possible.

One of their leaders said “We made it a very open invitation stating that you did not need to attend the club regularly and members could also bring their friends.” What a great way to increase turnout and introduce new people to Our Minds Matter! During Madison High School’s advisory period, club representatives and anyone else who wanted to come decorate a poster was welcome to do so.

Finally, they grabbed their posters and pom poms and walked in the parade! Looks like it was a hit. What an amazing way to reach the whole student body and represent your school’s OMM club!
