My mom, Virginia Blankenbaker, on the right below, made sure that I got a good education. Today, she helped send off my darling daughter, Emma, for her first day of school this year at New Trier High School too.
A good education is easy in New Trier Township. A good education in Haiti – not so.
However, thanks to Laura Pincus Hartman, who grew up in the New Trier community and is now the Vincent de Paul Professor of Business Ethics at DePaul University, 183 kids in Mirebalais, Haiti will get a good trilingual education and essential life needs met at the school she founded – The School of Choice.
You will be able to be entertained by superb Chicago comedian, actor & commentator, Aaron Freeman, and support The School Of Choice by attending a fundraiser for it on October 20th at Francis Parker School.
