The First Lady of Ghana Visits WMSG

The Washington Middle School for Girls at THEARC is very honored to have welcomed the First Lady of Ghana, Ernestina Naadu Mills for a visit of the school on March 9, 2012.  She was greeted and treated to a poetry reading by the students, shared her own reflections on being a corageous woman, and later showed her appreciation by awarding Sister Mary Bourdon with a Ghanian kente cloth.  She later embarked on a tour of THEARC with THEARC’s Executive Director Edmund Fleet, and greeted other students from Turner Elementary who were attending a show at THEARC Theater.
