DFES Family Displaced by Fire!

Let's Support Zakai Williams and Family - March 19, 2016 -

The home of Zakai Williams was destroyed by fire on Friday, March 18. Zakai is a fifth grader who has both T. Sumpter and N. Jefferson. He has an older brother, Ameer, who is a wrestler for Dutch Fork High School.


We had a chance to meet with Zakai's mother at the home today. Mrs. Dinkins-Williams is in good spirits and grateful given the circumstances.


As a school we have an opportunity to live into one of our beliefs. Please join us in taking social action to support this family.
