Boyd School Students Making A Difference

Over 600 students at the seven Boyd School campuses in Chantilly, Virginia took action to save lives in the Azawak of West Africa this spring.  Upper Elementary students in first grade through middle school, led by teacher Rodney Berthold and his middle school class, participated in A Walk for Water at a local park, while the younger students, ages 2 through 6, held Amman-a-thons at their schools.

This is the third year that Boyd School students have worked alongside Amman Imman: Water is Life to raise funds.  This year, I had the pleasure of presenting Amman Imman at many of the campuses. With the support of their teachers, parents, friends and neighbors, the students raised over $4,000.

Ariane Kirtley joined the Walk and spoke with the students before they started:
