UNA Dane visit to Albany Middle School

Todd Kummer and Kathleen Beckett, past presidents of UNA-USA Dane county, joined 5th and 6th graders and their teachers Jeff Campbell and Bryce Pickett at Albany Middle School April 22nd to hear student presentations on peace proposals for Southwest and South-Central Asia.

The students worked on their projects following a letter sent out from the United Nations Office of the Resident Coordinator of Southwest Asia and South-Central Asia asking for their help in finding peaceful solutions to areas in conflict.

The students worked in teams of three to develop their presentations and it was clear they were interested in our feedback.
