Wenatchee High School (WHS) has an enrollment of 2019 students and high diversity: more than half of its students are of Latino or Hispanic descent, and the same ratio come from high poverty backgrounds. Responding to these issues, WHS actively promotes inclusivity and provides its students with many opportunities to be involved in a wide variety of activities, ranging from equestrian competitions to robotics to mariachi.
The event was organized by Danielle Schafer-Cloke, WHS English Teacher and Varsity Cheerleading Head Coach, and my participation was arranged by Julia Thompson, Education Program Manager, and Morgan Romero, Museum and Education Assistant, Seattle’s Holocaust Center for Humanity.
