Congratulations to senior Sujin “Serena” Kim and junior Mercuri Lam, who won a competition and received funding through My People Clinical Services, a local social service organization, to create a writing workshop for young people from the Hartford area.
The Norton Fellows program offers a select group of Loomis students the opportunity to pursue their interests and become more engaged with their local communities over the summer break.
“I wanted to find a way to help others using the karate I’ve studied for many years.”
The selection committee seeks projects that demonstrate a commitment to exploring the intersection of the best self and the common good. Projects should be scaled for summer break, structured practically, and budgeted appropriately.
Beyond the viability of their projects, applicants should also demonstrate their own strong character, maturity, dependability, and good communication skills.
“What does ‘community’ mean and how should we reconsider ‘the common good?’” asks the film Community in the Time of COVID-19, created by senior Cole Alleyne and shared with the Loomis community on Wednesday, February 24.
Senior Eamon Moylan created a series of soccer training videos focusing on at-home skills development for kids as part of his Norton Fellowship, a community engagement program administered by Norton Family Center for the Common Good.
