While we are busy celebrating an amazing 100 years of graduate school education, there are many individuals in Haiti that have suffered an unimaginable loss. Though basic necessities are crucial in aiding these victims, Professor Leara Rhodes realized the detrimental impact loss of schooling could take on the children of Haiti. Combining with a team called “Partners in Progress” Professor Rhodes is taking action in helping to rebuild schools and orphanages for the children of Haiti. This Saturday, January 30th, Athens community members are putting on a benefit to raise funds for their effort at the Town and Gown Theater.
