Human Rights students present their project to the Cape and Islands Human Rights Academy


Four Falmouth Academy students, members of the Human Rights elective, presented their service project at the annual meeting of the Cape and Island’s chapter of the Human Rights Academy.

Students Cassidy Reves-Sohn, Maddie Primini, Liz Drinkwater and Phoebe Long discussed their project to assist children in need in Falmouth by raising money to donate healthy snacks to the Morse Pond School. By making and selling jewelry from recycled materials and gathering donations from students who “paid” to wear jeans to school, they were able to make several significant donations to provide snacks to children who wouldn’t otherwise have them during the school day.

Elenita Muniz, former Director of Publications at Falmouth Academy, is the Cape and Island’s Human Rights Academy director who hosted the all-day event in Hyannis, which was attended by a number of area schools.
