January 28—Ruby Nell Bridges Hall visited the school. Una Osili, Director of Research, made this exceptional connection with her. While here, she also met with Dean Amir Pasic, Patrick Rooney, Tyrone Freeman, Jacquie Ackerman, and Bill Stanczykiewicz.
She was visiting Indianapolis for some meetings at the Children’s Museum (an exhibit there on The Power of Children features her work), and she wanted to learn about the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy’s programs and tour the school. She is also interested in our expertise on corporate partnerships and best practices for nonprofits.
Ruby Nell Bridges Hall is an American activist known for being the first black child to attend an all-white elementary school in Louisiana during the 20th century. She attended William Frantz Elementary School. Learn more>
January 29—Tracey Carisch, Indiana University alumna, joined us for a talk about her travels and service to others with her family. In spring 2014, Tracey Carisch left her successful career and with her husband and their three young daughters embarked on a journey around the world that would take them through 24 countries on six continents over the next 18 months. At the heart of their decision to take this dramatic life turn was the increasingly frenetic pace of modern family life. As the family assisted with education programs in Ethiopia, cared for dying animals in Thailand, served drug addicts in Bolivia and helped with dozens of other projects around the world, the family gained a new perspective. Her blog, 100waystochangetheworld.com, chronicled the family’s adventure with her writing and her husband’s photography.
