“Scholar Ladies” video, by students of HOPE Christian Schools in Milwaukee, becomes online sensation

Posted on Categories HOPE By staff writer | The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation

A video posted on YouTube by students of HOPE Christian Schools in Milwaukee called “Scholar Ladies” has become an online sensation and attracted the admiring attention of several national media outlets. The video mimicks Beyoncé’s hit “Single Ladies” video.

While Beyoncé sings about seeking an engagement ring, though, the HOPE girls sing about getting good grades, preparing for college, and keeping out of trouble. “If you learned it, then you should have got an ‘A’ on it,” they sing. “Don’t be mad when you see that we got it.”

The video was first made as part of a schoolwide talent competition at one of the campuses of HOPE Christian Schools, which is supported by Milwaukee’s Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation.

The HOPE students are hoping the video gets a million page views.

What is Greater Purpose?

We chose the name “Open Sky Education” for a reason. We believe that we all do better work when we’re looking up.

Looking up often leads to the discovery of a cause or context that is greater than yourself. One that inspires you to serve selflessly and leads to more fulfilling work.

We refer to this as “Greater Purpose.” It’s what inspires our work in the classroom, in the board room, and in communities we serve. With this perspective, we can be true serving leaders, advancing ideas that are bigger than us, for the benefit of others.
