Stagg students invited on Lady Gaga stage during Las Vegas show
Two Stagg High School students were among 16 teens invited on stage at a Lady Gaga concert in Las Vegas. Morgan Sukalo and Persephone Valdes represented Stagg’s participation as one of only 8 schools in the country to provide Teen Mental Health First Aid training in a pilot program supported by the artist’s Born This Way Foundation and the National Council for Behavioral Health.
“It was absolutely amazing meeting and being on stage with Lady Gaga,” said Valdes. “It’s one of those things that you’d never believe will happen to you. Not once has it crossed my mind that I’d be where I was that day.”
Stagg High School Social Worker Shannon Mongan chaperoned the students to the meeting with the Born This Way Foundation. She also was part of the PPS Team and Health Teachers who coordinated the mental health training at the school. Stagg staff looks forward to continuing the training this coming school year.
