“In order to realize our mission of transforming all schools into places where every student learns and thrives it is critical that we build a strong network of professionals that accurately reflects the makeup of all the schools and communities across the country. This means that the membership of ASHA, our leadership, volunteers, staff, contractors, as well as scholarship and award recipients must be at the very least proportionally representative of the many races, ethnicities, nationalities, genders, sexual orientations, and other characteristics of the students we serve. In being true to the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child model, we must also ensure that we represent the many and varied professional disciplines that are necessary to help build a nationwide infrastructure where every child can be healthy, safe, supported, challenged, and engaged. ASHA aspires to lead, educate, and activate diverse school health champions, but where do we begin?”- ASHA President Ty Oehrtman
