He also doesn't take himself too seriously, is easy to laugh and always shows up to class with a smile on his face.

Deb Anderson received a beautiful email and video from Jeremy Bloom, the wonderful new Director of the Athens Cultural Center thanking students and teachers for their teamwork. Ms. Anderson would also like to extend to each of our Art teachers a very big thank you for a great evening and for all of the good work they do everyday in the classroom! The video linked below is best viewed on a phone since for some reason instagram only seems to function on mobile devices. “Deb, Thanks so much to you and all the teachers for putting together a great show and also for producing such a successful event, from you all bringing the snacks to setting everything up to greeting all the people! There's some pictures and a video up on our instagram - www.instragam.com/athensculturalcenter Elisa had the awesome idea to put that in the school newsletter that goes out Sunday along with our flyer for the free classes this summer. Really appreciate you all spreading the word about those, as well as the pop up family events, and other classes that happen here. So cool and inspiring to see the creativity in the room yesterday afternoon! Thanks again, Jeremy”
Members of the High School Student Council attended the 4th Annual Youth Summit at the Albany Capital Center on Wednesday, 3/16. Highlights of the day were presentations from SafeBAE (a survivor-founded, student-led national organization whose mission is to end sexual assault among middle and high school students.), The Harris Project (advocates for the implementation of integrated treatment opportunities to improve the lives of teens and young adults diagnosed with co-occurring disorders - which is the combination of one or more mental health challenges and substance misuse and/or addiction.), as well as performances by Benjamin Lerner (Benjamin Lerner, the Great-grandson of Irving Berlin, who is a Vermont-based Composer, Writer, Radio Host, and Recovery Advocate. Benjamin started his musical career as a classical piano prodigy. By his early twenties, he was an IV heroin and crack cocaine addict. Now sober since June 13, 2016, he journals his journey in addiction and sobriety in his all new piano-raps, which combine classical piano and rap.). This is the 2nd time Student Council was invited to attend and they are hoping to make it a yearly tradition so that they can bring these valuable resources back to CA.
