Lotspeich Continues to Showcase Changemakers
In honor of Black History Month throughout the month of February, the Lotspeich Lower School showcased Black changemakers with lessons and presentations about their impact on history. Now into April, Lotspeich is continuing to share presentations about changemakers. “Since the kids were so excited and interested in learning about new people, we decided to continue changemakers during the Monday morning assemblies throughout the rest of the school year,” said Lotspeich librarian Lori Suffield. “Throughout February, staff members have introduced a changemaker during most of the Monday assemblies.” Recent changemakers have included soccer player Megan Rapinoe, activist Marly Dias, immunologist Kizzmekia Corbett, and biochemist Katalin Kariko. At next week’s assembly, Suffield will discuss author Don Tate, who will be virtually visiting Lotspeich and Doherty Lower Schools.
