Peaceful gathering

This week is Peace Week at Mills Lawn School, and to celebrate, the student body “chose peace” — gathering on school grounds to form a huge peace sign, each student wearing a “Choose Peace” T-shirt. A peace-focused assembly followed, with local leaders speaking about how they strive to spread peace in their jobs and everyday lives.

The assembly immediately following the gathering featured dancing, singing, music and speakers, including Mayor David Foubert; Village Council President Karen Wintrow; Council member Gerald Simms; Ashleigh DuBois, from the Coretta Scott King Center; Jennifer Berman, from Antioch College; and District Superintendent Mario Basora.
