Out of 1,300 schools from across the U.S. and Canada, Bradley’s Invisible Children club came in seventh place in the “Schools 4 Schools” competition, raising $15,404 in 100 days. The money went to build a dormitory at Lacor Secondary School in Northern Uganda. In addition, six students from BCHS were invited to travel to San Diego and participate in the Invisible Children fourth Estate Conference for young global leaders.
Students were challenged to rise up and stand for social justice in their own communities and around the world. The students who attended this conference were Jessilyn Adams, Lindsey Armstrong, Laura Kate Evans, Matt Cook, Devin McCulley, and Katrina Hughes.
Bradley’s connection to “Invisible Children” deepened as World History teacher Bonnie Cretton and her husband, Ocoee Middle School teacher Chris Cretton, were chosen to participate in the Invisible Children Teacher Exchange in Northern Uganda for six weeks over the summer. In January, BCHS will host a Ugandan teacher in the reciprocal Teacher Exchange.
