The Social Action Committee's First Local Hero Award
was presented 6-7-15 to to Susan Barry
Susan Barry & Friends 6-7-15
The Social Action Committee has instituted a program for celebrating Local Heroes. We believe that many people in our communities are doing important, under-appreciated work in social service and social action. Our first honoree will be Susan Barry, a long time language arts teacher at Maplewood Middle School who has organized a Model UN that is accessible to all types of students.
After several successful years, she is now teaching a one semester elective in Model UN to a total of 60 students along with running the extra-curricular group. Her students commemorated Human Rights Day by researching human rights violations throughout the world, and members wore placards that told the story of a human rights violation somewhere in the world. They also celebrated Red Hand Day in commemoration of child soldiers throughout the world by researching specific stories of child soldiers and sharing that information with other classes in the building. Please join us at the Program Sunday, June 7 to honor this local hero.
