Graduates give voice to senior projects

Presentations at Community School next week


    It’s not surprising that the biggest Community School graduating class in school history—38 students—has needed an extra day to deliver the oral presentations of their senior projects in the next few days.
    Thirty-three of the graduating seniors are giving oral presentations Monday through Friday, May 12-16, in the theater at the Sun Valley independent school. The extra day is today, Friday, May 9, for the first four speakers.
    Subjects of the talks are diverse, ranging from visits to Namibia, to drones, dyslexia, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and globalization. Here’s a list and starting times of the 20-minute presentations. The public is invited to attend:
