Global Issues Class Informs Students about Malaria

On Wednesday November 5th, Global Issues teacher James Wallimann and some of his students provided a presentation to educate the high school on this year’s topic of Malaria. Each year in the students in Global Issues choose a worldwide dilemma to provide a donation to. The money for the donation will come from a series of fundraisers and events run by the class over the course of the year.

At the beginning of the presentation, senior Steven Ascolillo asked a volunteer in the audience to start a stopwatch to see how long the presentation would take. Once the PowerPoint was finished, the final time was translated into how many people had died from malaria because a person dies every minute from malaria.
