SSPP Trivia
When our school was founded in 1853....
. ..neither people nor communities could turn to the American Red Cross whenever any national emergency or disaster would occur.  It wasn't until 1881 when Clara Barton risked her life to bring supplies and support to soldiers in the field during the Civil War that the idea of an outside agency helping in a crisis began to take root.

That led to her founding the American Red Cross in the same year, at age 60, an organization she led for the next 23 years.
