Students from Smith Leadership Academy visit AIDS Action’s offices
Posted Nov 17 2008 4:18pm
8th grade students from the Smith Leadership Academy paid a day-long visit the AIDS Action Committee offices in early November. They were accompanied by their homeroom teacher Laura Kacewicz and the head of Smith Leadership, Kamala Sherwood.
While at the AAC office a number of staff members spoke to them, including Eric Brus in the HIV/AIDS Library, Tonia Hines & Emerson Miller from Peer Support, and Deb Fournier from Public Policy. Our BE SAFE Mass Promise Fellow Cara Mathews toured them around the offices and organized most of their activities.
During the afternoon of their visit, the students made scarves out of fleece fabric that they brought with them. When they had completed their project at the end of the day, the scarves were donated to Boomerangs to benefit AIDS Action.
We extend our thanks to the students and faculty of Smith Leadership Academy for all their hard work and their interest in the work that we do.
