Students Use Grants to Help Local Schools

Two Pomona College students are using $10,000 grants from the Donald A. Strauss Foundation to create year-long public service projects at a pair of nearby schools. Beginning this semester, Nathalie Folkerts ’16 is launching a healthy-eating initiative at Vista del Valle Elementary School in Claremont, while Karen Herrera ’15 will return to her hometown to develop an arts enrichment program at La Puente High School. A public policy major with a concentration in biology, Folkerts is organizing an initiative at Vista to help families and children learn to grow their own food and prepare healthy meals, while also tackling food justice issues. Herrera will develop an arts enrichment program at La Puente High School, where she graduated in 2011.
