Honoring Dr. King


Upper school students at Stuart Country Day School organized a Unity March to pay respects to Martin Luther King during their lunch time on January 9. Nearly 100 students took part in the March, which was led by the upper school club DAYS, Diversity Awareness Youth Services Club, and was organized by club co-heads senior Nneka Onukwagha and junior Makeda White. In addition to honoring Dr. King, the club sought to bring attention to the continued need for dialogue and action on issues of social justice. The upper and middle school girls marched from the front of the school on Stuart Road, up to the Great Road, to the Stuart athletic fields and back down to the front of the school, where they were joined by Barbara Anne Cagney’s second grade class, who had recently completed an academic unit on Dr. King.
