ACE Students Visit Quaker School and D.C.

ACE Students Visit Quaker School and D.C.

Published: April 17, 2012

During their spring break, students from the BAPs (Believing All is Possible!) mentoring program at Logan High School took a trip to Sandy Spring Friends School in Sandy Spring, MD and Washington D.C.

At Sandy Spring Friends School (SSFS), Logan students shadowed SSFS students to their classes and attended a schoolwide Quaker meeting, where they were amazed that hundreds of high school students stayed in quiet reflections for over thirty minutes.  The kids visited the school gardens and got to go zip-lining too!

On our trip to Washington D.C., we toured the campus of George Washington University and visited both the Martin Luther King Jr. and Franklin Delano Roosevelt memorials.  Devon Washington's favorite quote at the FDR Memorial was: "In these days of difficulty, we Americans everywhere must and shall choose a path of social justice...The path of faith, the path of hope, and the path of love toward our fellow man."
