FYCC Celebrates Nelson Mandela

FYCC_Mandela_Candice_72_01_WP

GLIDE’s Family, Youth, and Childcare Center teachers honored Nelson Mandela in their classes during the week of December 10-19, 2013. Students learned about Mandela’s life and legacy and made Soweto ornaments for an art display in the FYCC lobby, which was installed by FYCC Creative Arts Instructor Candice Jacobs. Following are a few quotes from students of what they learned about Mandela:

Jose J., 5th grade: “He [Nelson Mandela] fought for rights because he did not want people to be treated badly.”

Lizeth M., 2nd grade: “Nelson Mandela helped [his] people to have a better life and a better country. He tried his best to make people [feel] well.”

Angel J., 3rd grade: “Nelson Mandela was a good man and, he got rights for people. He said that Blacks and Whites need to be together.”
