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. SK&A gladly supports Communities In Schools of NOVA (CIS Nova) through sponsorship of and engagement in events like this one, the 2022 Back to School Bash! Last year, CIS Nova served over 13,000 students across 9 schools in Arlington, Alexandria, and Fairfax. Support to students includes things like mentorship and tutoring; medical, dental and vision care; meals and weekly groceries; and opportunities for the students themselves to also give back and engage with the community.
This year’s bash raised over $60,000 to continue that work. Other companies supporting this event included: Amazon, Greystar, Cooper Carry, Pathstone, Walsh Colucci Lubely & Walsh, JLL, John Moriarty and Associates, and Dewberry. SK&A staff in attendance of this Back to School Bash included: Josh Woolcock, PE, LEED AP, Seth Rogge, PE, SE, James Grant, PE, SE, CDT, Ahmed Al Rahmani, PhD, PE, Naina Bhanot, EIT, LEED AP, and Jessica Wakeman, PE, SE.
