BMHS Students Make a Difference at Standing Rock

This article just posted at the Billerica Minuteman website tells the story of Liam Henderson, Class of 2017, and his efforts to raise funds and awareness for the Slippery Rock Reservation in North Dakota,  To quote from the article:

In two short weeks, Henderson collected 800 pounds of firewood, 20 hand-warmers, jackets, blankets, and cans of soup for the people of Standing Rock.

Then came the long haul, approximately 1,700 miles separate Billerica and Standing Rock Indian Reservation.

When we talk about the important of community and how students can be involved in the greater world around them, this is the pinnacle of what we talk about.  Thank you to Liam and this family, and everyone who donated in order to make this happen.
