PALM COAST, Fla., June 10, 2020 — On June 2, students from Indian Trails Middle School placed signs at AdventHealth Palm Coast that aim to bring awareness to mental health and spread messages of positivity.
These signs were designed and created by a team of students who are members of the Indian Trails Middle School Future Problem Solvers, including Kyra Baldwin, Mary Foulk, Stanley Gatzek, Brynn Gifford, Jack Gilvary, Glynnis Gong, Malina Hreib, Leila Jackson, Emma Mittledorfer, Stephanie Ramatar, Carolina Sawicki, Samantha Simon and Austin Weeks.
This team’s project, COPE (Collaborating with Others to Progress Emotional resilience), recently received first place in the state’s Florida Future Problem Solvers competition, which was held virtually in April. The team will go on to participate in this year's International Competition in June.
“I am extremely proud of the hard work and effort they put in this and the way they continued this project when the school closed due to COVID-19,” said Jennifer Colintres, Indian Trails Future Problem Solvers sponsoring teacher.
“We are proud to display these two signs on our hospital campus, showing support and positive messaging to our employees, guests and patients,” said Wally De Aquino, AdventHealth Palm Coast chief operating officer. “We are appreciative of this group of young problem solvers bringing up such an important topic.”
