Carmel High School is a WE School and Carmel Unified is a WE Educational Partner. Our club has been featured on their website with our Valentines project, WE Are Love, and an article in Track Your Impact about Caroline Mierzwa. In 2018 Coral Barrett was on the WE Day stage talking about her “WHY”, human trafficking. Students from our school, including club member Julia Kurz, performed “Letter to My Future Daughter” on the WE Day California stage. Check out the WE Day recap.
Our trip in 2018 was unusual! Last spring our school dance show featured an amazing spoken word piece. Ms. Cambra showed the performance to Kasha Butler, our contact at WE Schools, and our performing arts students were invited to perform on stage at WE Day California in front of 16,000 people. The club and performers traveled to LA together, made 100 lunches for PATH, 400 swag bags at Thirst Project, sorted and inventoried donations at Baby2Baby, and took a tour of The Dream Center. The trip ended at WE Day where the performers took the stage to share Letter to My Future Daughter, written by Grace Heidtke, choreographed by Natalie Lobo, with Kenshi Husted on violin. Club president Coral Barrett also took the stage to share her passion to fight human trafficking. John Stamos was the host, Morgan Freeman was there for the first time, and amazing time was had by all. The trip was amazing, please check out the student and chaperone reflections.
A huge thank you to our foundation sponsors: Yellow Brick Road, Carmel High School Foundation, and Carmel Rotary.
