21 Colorado and Wyoming Schools Earn Designation as No Place for Hate®

NPFH Designations May 2009 - Thumb

Date: April 29, 2009

From Colorado Springs to Laramie and from Durango to Platteville, 21 schools have spent the 2008-9 school year working to earn their designations as No Place for Hate®. April and May have been punctuated by ceremonies celebrating these designations.

Yesterday, Rangeview High School became the first school in the Aurora (Colorado) Public School District to earn its designation at a ceremony attended by Aurora School Board members and Bill Johnson, columnist for the Denver Post. Johnson wrote about the ADL’s program and its effect on the student body at Rangeview in a column today, “School Aims to Expel Hate.”

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
