Nimitz Helps Those in Need
Students had the opportunity to participate in the "Nuru Walk". Students experienced the difficulty of carrying a bucket of water for a mile to "walk a mile in someone else's shoes." The event was started by Mrs. Stewart, now a teacher at ISA at Lee High School, who had their own event last Friday. Combined, the two events have raised close to $4,000 for Nuru (Nuru's projects are specifically going to help communities in Kenya and Ethiopia). The event was a great opportunity to learn and serve, and was a big success thanks to students, parents and staff coming together!
