Art Trip Time Sensitive Need - Feb 9 Deadline!

The Art Department at Seneca is taking a group of scholars to London and Paris during Spring Break 2018.  Several champions ('teachers' for those of you who graduated a few years ago) have discovered that there is one scholar in danger of not being able to raise enough money to attend the trip.   His family and he have been working very hard to send Mohammed on this educational trip to London and Paris. However, due to medical issues, job-setbacks and excessive bills, they can no longer afford the entire cost of the trip.

Mohammed is a young man who did not receive education until the age of ten when his family and he migrated to the United States. It was not until he moved to the United States that he received access to language. Once he was able to access language, this young man has fought to learn, not only his native language of Arabic, but English at the same time. This has not been an easy task for this young man. However, he has persevered and continues to strive to overcome the obstacles he has faced.  His tireless work ethic and will to learn are truly impressive.  He never complains, only smiles.


Educational travel allows students the opportunity to be thrown into a new culture and language, to see history face to face, to embark on the unknown and to most importantly ...grow as a human.
