Painting, remembering

About 200 students from Joseph W. Grier Academy, McClintock and Alexander Graham middle schools gathered July 16 to paint butterflies for a Holocaust memorial sculpture at the Shalom Park campus.

Students listened to guest speakers, had discussions about prejudices and stereotypes, and held a short ceremony at the Children's Holocaust Memorial Sculpture in the Margaret and Lou Schwartz Butterfly Garden as part of their service project. The butterfly tiles they painted will be affixed to the memorial in several weeks.

Hillary Ryan, director of marketing and special events for Freedom School Partners, said about 25 Charlotte-area schools will eventually participate in the project.
