Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney and Director of Community Wealth Building Reggie Gordon visited StC on Thursday, Jan. 11, 2018.
Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney and Mr. Reggie Gordon, Director of Community Wealth Building, spoke with Upper School students from St. Christopher's and St. Catherine's on Thursday, Jan. 11. The visit was timed to honor the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. The two men spoke to students about the challenge of poverty that faces Richmond, as well as their own experiences as public servants. Earlier in the day, the students met in small groups to consider their own relationships with the Richmond area.
The presentation left the audience with the feeling of hope for the future of our city.
Mayor Stoney has encouraged students to take part in one of several service projects around Richmond on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Read about these opportunities on the City of Richmond's website.
