Raihan Sayeed Strong Supporter of Education for Underprivileged Children at Crescent High School

December 23, 2013

A business major and pre-medical student at Loyola University, Raihan Sayeed believes strongly in the power of education. As part of his volunteer efforts, Ray Sayeed has supported 50 underprivileged children at Crescent High School in India.

Located on the outskirts of Chennai (Madras), Crescent High School, a branch also located in Hyderabad, was founded in 1968 as a residential school for boys. Sponsored by the Seethakathi Trust, the school’s academic program covers classes V to XII. Physical education and religious studies are also included.

At Crescent High School, education extends beyond the classroom. Older students are invited to become involved in various community service projects, including work with the World Wildlife Fund. Several clubs and associations provide opportunities for students to further explore their talents in areas such as mathematics, literary arts, and nature. Through the annual Seethakathi Tournament and the Imam Mapillai Aalim Oratorical Contest, Crescent High School students test their athletic and oratory skills against students from nearby schools.
