To the editor:
While I realize that my response is very delayed, I wanted to send a huge shout-out to our students in The Dalles. Lucy Booth & the members of Girls, Inc. are doing a great job of raising awareness and funds for education around the world; I’m sorry to have missed the recent film showing, but look forward to the next public event.
I was also proud to see Nathan Nañez’s work as a student representative and advocate for schools in Salem. I am very impressed—although not surprised—at the initiative and leadership these students have taken.
As their teacher and coach I may be very biased, but also legitimately proud. Thank you for featuring their stories and voices.
