GWU Remembers Haiti Earthquake One Year Later With Anniversary Ceremony

“Exactly one year ago at about 4:52 p.m., I was sitting at a round table, enjoying rice and beans in the comfort of my home located in the capital city of Port-au-Prince, Haiti,” Karl Delatour, a George Washington University Freshman who hails from Haiti, recalled Wednesday as he spoke at GW’s one-year Haiti anniversary ceremony.  “As I reflected on how to go about studying for my upcoming history exam, I suddenly felt the table vibrate.  As this vibration becomes more and more strong, it is not until my glass of water fell to the ground and shattered that I realized that something big was happening…something really big.”

School Without Walls Senior Raising Monday For Senior Project

School Without Walls Senior Raising Monday For Senior Project

Like many overwhelmed seniors, who are visiting colleges and making tough decisions while finishing up their last year of high school, Kara, a resident of Cleveland Park and a senior at DC’s School Without Walls, is required to do a senior project for graduation.  Students select their own projects and mentors help them while they carry them out.  

Kara must write a research paper, and then give an oral presentation to members of the community who are familiar with the subject area.  At this joyous time of year, Kara’s choice is not joyous—instead it’s a serious subject that affects teenagers:  “Self-Harm.”
