Sudanese Posse

Franco Majok came to speak to our English classes today about his experiences as a Lost Boy of Sudan in conjunction with our reading of What is the What. Our posse of fundraisers was able to present Mr. Majok with a donation to help rebuild schools in Wunlang, Southern Sudan. Great work, guys.

Think about what Franco said: he owes his life to education. His education allowed him to read signs and maps in order to escape the war. While we all never hope to live through such circumstances, perhaps we could all learn as if our lives depended on it.
