Maggie Walker Alumnus Speaks on Experiences in Haiti

MLWGS alum and William and Mary freshman Danny Yates was in Haiti during last month’s tragic earthquake. Now back in Virginia, Danny will share his story and thoughts at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, March 10 in the Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School Forum. (There will be a preview at 11:40-12:10 at the same place and date).

Come hear what it was like to walk through the hardest hit sections of Port-au-Prince just three days after the 7.0 quake devastated the island nation of Haiti, already the poorest country in the western hemisphere. Learn about Haitian culture through an audio-visual presentation and a question and answer session.

Additionally, Danny will share ways that the Richmond community can best help with relief efforts which are directly and daily benefiting displaced and injured quake victims.
