Each year, the World Affairs Council honors a local K-12 educator who demonstrates leadership in connecting students to the world and contributes to the development of new programs and resources that enable other teachers to do the same.
Hands for a Bridge provides high school youth with opportunities to explore issues surrounding social justice. It is an established class in the daily schedule at Roosevelt High School. It is being recognized for its dedication to increasing global awareness by fostering dialogue about issues surrounding social justice.
Over the years, this program has transformed students into global citizens with the vision and resources to affect change in the world. Over the past ten years, Roosevelt High School families have opened their hearts and homes to youth ambassadors from Brazil, Serbia, Bosnia, and most recently, Myanmar/Burma.
The award was given to the Hands for a Bridge team of educators composed of Principal Brian Vance; and teachers Karen Grace, Carolyn Kenney Hall, Richard Katz, Kara Macdonald, Janine Magidman and Thomas Nolet.
