Stillwater Junior High Raises the bar!

Stillwater Junior High School, located in Stillwater, MN recently hosted a terrific event.  Students read the book, "They Poured Fire on us From the Sky", and then invited "Lost Boy" speaker John Dau to speak to the community in Stillwater.  Over 500 people attended the evening event and learned about the hardships endured by Dau during his relocation from Sudan.  Students were amazed at his story.  In conjunction with the book, Stillwater Junior High is raising funds to help build 2 wells for South Sudan.  They have already raised over $7500 this year, with a goal of $10,000!  Teachers and students, along with project lead teacher Sara Damon- we salute you and your efforts!

The video below shares a few commens by students and John Dau.
