2023 Spring Celebration

Thank you to everyone who attended and contributed to our 2023 Spring Celebration at Community College of Philadelphia

Our special program featured student-produced video shorts and live student interviews with:

(From left) Howard Stevenson, Ph.D., Constance Clayton Professor of Urban Education and Professor of Africana Studies, University of Pennsylvania, and Tim Massaquoi, L.P.C., Clinical Director, The Ladipo Group, Philadelphia. 

We were thrilled to update you on what our student reporters have accomplished during the 2022–23 school year, and to give you a chance to meet Healthy NewsWorks participants and see student work.

The students’ focus was on the connection between health and the environment, reporting on our theme Caring for Our Earth and Ourselves.
