International Day brings students together with alumni, other guests
Instead of International Day bringing different performances and lots of tasty treats from all over the world, this year’s edition brought a lot of different guests who offered incredible experiences and knowledge.
With the help of Señora Fierro, Señora Greenfield and Madame Bolshakova, several students produced videos of musical, dance and creative performances. – Our thanks for all of the wonderful student produced videos.
In the Lower School, author Carmen Tafolla ’69 read from her newest children’s book, “The Last Butterfly/La Ultima Mariposa”
Middle School students heard from Shannon Sedgwick Davis, human rights advocate and CEO of Bridgeway Foundation, a philanthropic organization dedicated to ending and preventing mass atrocities around the world. She spoke of her work in combatting genocide and crimes against humanity. She’s also a Keystone parent.
Upper Schoolers heard from:
Janie Barrera, President and CEO of LiftFund, a nonprofit lending organization on “Leveling the financial playing field”
Jozsef Terenyi, Keystone parent on “Why You Should Visit Hungary”
Sasha Rohret ’08, PhD candidate in Archeology at the University of Chicago on “Life in the Field: A Multicultural Experience”
Keystone 10th graders Quincy, Lily, and Stella on “What we did for Global Nomads Group”
Doris White ’74, former Massachusetts Assistant Attorney General, presenting “From the Eastside to Beacon Hill and Back: Lessons Learned Along the Way”
Jill Metcalfe from the City of San Antonio Economic Development Department: Office of Global Engagement
Mia Lopez ’03, curator and arts administrator on “How Studying Abroad in Buenos Aires Influenced My Career in Contemporary Art”
Even if we couldn’t gather together, the day still brought meaningful activities and insights to our students.
