Highline High students raise awareness of humanitarian crisis in Africa
Highline High School Avid students are helping to raise awareness about the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Somalia and the Congo. After hearing a presentation about the crisis, they pledged to get involved in the One Million Bone Challenge.
AVID students will make 2,500 bones out of newspaper and masking tape. The bones, representing the commonality of all people and the strength of the human spirit, will be sent to Washington, D.C., where they will be part of a display on the National Mall in June.
AVID is a program to prepare students to be successful in college.
Highline High School AVID students participating in the project are: Jakeline Franco, Alex Rodriquez-Marquez, Citlaly Ramirez, David Villegas, Michael Devos, Veronica Gonzales, Mia Alvarez, Ivonne Aguiniga, and Jerry Lo. They have been assisted by Stephanie and Pauline from One-Million-Bones.
