Hope Squad

Ella Risdon, Journalist

Hope Squad is a peer-nominated suicide prevention program. It’s run by Ms. Pierson, Mr. Perez, and the Hope Squad members. These students are working to help any and all Sterling students who want or need help or information on mental illness, suicide, and self-harm. Hope Squad members are trained in QPR, which stands for Question, Persuade, Refer. Hope Squad does some events, including helping with FCCLA fundraisers and collaborations with Only7Seconds, where we set up a table at lunch. Hope Squad is here for you, and remember to Be The Light.
