News From Masters
A "Party for the Planet" and a Sustainability Market are among the activities planned on campus this month to celebrate Earth Day, which officially takes place on April 22.
EFFECT, Masters' student-run sustainability committee, will present a Party for the Planet (POP) — featuring music, games and food — in Doc Wilson Hall from 5:00-7:00 PM on Friday, April 20. The suggested donation is $3.00, with all proceeds going to Youth for Climate Change (Y4C), which is working to address climate change globally through local actions.
All donations will go toward the planting of 5,000 mangrove trees on the Bay of Bengal in Myanmar on behalf of The Masters School, according to Courtney White and Meghan MacWilliams, the School's Green Deans.
On Friday, April 27, EFFECT will present the second annual Sustainability Market, from 3:30-4:30 PM on the Quad. A variety of items, including farm goods and handmade items, will be sold to support EFFECT's initiatives.
The market will be followed by a screening of the documentary Racing Extinction at 4:30 PM in the Sharon Room at the Fonseca Center. The film addresses the issues of endangered species and mass extinction.
