Family, friends, supporters and Ocean Discovery Institute staff gathered at the Copley-Price Family YMCA for a Student Reading of “Our Heroes 2016”.
Through an incredible partnership with PEN Center USA’s PEN in the Community program, our Ocean Leaders discover their inner author through directed writing instruction with Writer in Residence, Amy Wallen. Over the course of several months their personal journals became the seeds for stories and reflections of amazing lives and awesome futures.
Tonight we had the pleasure of hearing from several contributors on their heroic journeys. Each of their stories brings into focus how many have overcome the unthinkable and find an exciting future ahead. View all event photos HERE.
