MLWGS Alum Presents Plan to Help Haitian Students

Nearly four months have passed since the tragic January 12, 2010 earthquake struck Haiti, killing hundreds of thousands and forever changing the lives of every citizen of this impoverished Caribbean island. While Haiti has faded from our headlines, its problems are still pressing. International leaders have described higher education as the key to successful recovery for Haiti.   MLWGS Alum, Danny Yates ('09), who was in Haiti when the quake hit will present a plan to help six displaced Haitian students continue their education in the US.  The presentation will be attended by Taylor Reveley, president of the College of William and Mary along with representatives from  the Richmond School Board and MLWGS Regional School board.  Come on out to learn how you can help Haiti's university student quake victims.  The presentation will take place Wednesday May 19 at 6:00pm at St. Bridgets Church (6006 Three Chopt Road) For more information visit Danny’s website: or e-mail him at
