Students at the high school raised more than $850 for the annual global advocacy initiative “The Voice of Potential.” The initiative, which was founded by Freeport High School teacher Pamela Mary Schmidt, benefitted the 63 children at the Zanmi Beni orphanage in Port au Prince, Haiti. The children created bracelets that the students sold at the high school and at Dodd under the leadership of Ms. Schmidt and Katelyn Salisbury, respectively. The initiative served to teach students that they can make a difference in the lives of others through collaborative efforts. Students who wish to contribute to the cause are encouraged to see Ms. Schmidt or Ms. Salisbury.
