Amanda Misiti Visits the 7th Grade at Lyndonville

Former Medina graduate Amanda Misiti, came to speak to the Lyndonville 7th graders. The 7th graders just finished reading the novel “A Long Walk to Water” which takes place in Sudan, Africa, near where Misiti spent time in the Peace Corps. She helped bring a sense of understanding to students of how life really is for the citizens of Africa. Students made connections through the novel they read, by asking Amanda questions on her experiences. one topic discussed was the health and living conditions to which Misiti worked closely within a health clinic where she helped malnourished children and birthing babies. Lyndonville was grateful of her taking the time to speak to the children.
