Sixteen STF members from Academy of the Canyons, Golden Valley High, Hart High and Valencia High hosted an EMUS Campaign exhibit at the Annual Santa Clarita Valley Literacy and Arts Festival on Saturday, December 7 at the Newhall library. STF students provided attendees with information about EMUS and took photos of teens and adults who wanted to join the campaign. In addition, attendees were asked to sign a petition to local Congressman Howard “Buck” McKeon calling for his support of EMUS. Young children had a great time finger painting as they created Trees of Knowledge as their way to show solidarity with children who do not have access to safe schools. The beautiful artwork will be on display in each of the city libraries. STF leaders plan to take one of the completed trees and petitions to Congressman McKeon’s office in spring 2014.
Huge thanks to our wonderful STF members: Erick Calderon, Robert Herrera, Rudy Palacios, Enrique Nolasco, Shayda Azamian, Matthew Nali, Therese Liwag, Sara Liu, Don Kim, Esme Erdynast, Jessica Lynn, Gabrielle Zacky, Joey Gangley, Lauren Dam, Lorenzo Medina and Sarah Struble.
