ABENY Honorable Mention: Pooja Das
Our 7th grade student, Pooja Das from class 701, submitted for the Political Trailblazers Essay Contest that was sponsored by the Association of Black Educators of New York (ABENY).
Special shout out to Waters Mary Ellen for encouraging our students to enter the contest and for recognizing Pooja's efforts with a certificate from our school. Pooja was given an honorable mention for her submission by the ABENY organization. In honor of Women's History Month, please take a moment to support Pooja by reading the essay she wrote on her hero, Shirley Chisholm.
