The City of Morgantown’s Human Rights Commission recognized PSALM students as an organization that exemplifies the spirit of diversity and human rights. PSALM students were presented with the award at a ceremony on December 20th at Morgantown City Council Chambers. The students were also honored with a reception following the award ceremony.
Jan Derry, director of the HRC, stated, “I believe the leadership, role modeling of compassion for our global neighbors and activism demonstrated by the students of PSALM will go a long way for moving our city to becoming a more inclusive community. I personally am thrilled to learn of such a remarkable program and feel blessed to be able to be a part of bestowing this recognition to PSALM students”.
PSALM students wish to thank the SFCC school community and parents for their support! YOU make our “Mission Possible”!
PSALM students are currently working on an upcoming exhibition to open FEBRUARY 10TH, 2017.
“WE ARE ALL CONNECTED” ART EXHIBIT is a look at the interconnectedness of life and the need to abolish landmines and cluster munitions.
The theme for our art exhibit is inspired by Native American Chief Seattle’s quote, “Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things are connected.” CHIEF SEATTLE
“What We Do to One, We Do to All…What We Do for One, We Do for All”
When we recognize that we are all connected, we begin to understand that our life touches more people than we can ever know. The question is not if we are making a difference, but rather what kind of difference are we making? We are not alone on the journey through life — we are all connected at some level. The actions of one person can affect another person, which, in turn, affects another and yet another. We see this “connectedness” is how these weapons affect people and their environments around the world. We also see it in the work of the international community of people that comprise the campaigns to rid the world of these weapons. This vast global community that make up the International Campaign to Ban Landmines and Cluster Munitions, along with survivors, share strategies and work together to ensure that affected regions have the capacity to reach their goals. Our exhibit hopes to demonstrate that we are truly connected…to each other and the environment.
“WE ARE CONNECTED” ART EXHIBIT will host an opening reception on February 10th from 5:30 to 7:30 pm with PSALM students acting as hosts and guides. Please join us at the Monongalia Arts Center, downtown, Morgantown. The exhibit will run until March 4th, 2017.
