Butler Bears (and a Lion) Build a School

Last May, Butler raised over $15,000 for Volunteers for International Development and Aid, a non-profit organization co-founded by Ms. Sonnie, which used the money to build a new school in Ghana. The new school has three classrooms, an office and a storage room for supplies. Last June, two Butler teachers, Ms. Tessa Albin and Ms. Kathryn Sonnie, traveled to help with the construction of this school. The teachers presented their experience to the Butler students at our town meeting on January 8, 2013. The new school will open in the next few weeks. This experience is just one of the ways that Butler Bears learn that through teamwork they can change the lives of others.
