Clements High School Global Studies Academy students participate in annual Partnership Walk
Clements High School Global Studies Academy students and their families walked to reduce poverty world-wide Saturday, Oct. 27 at Hermann Square.
Other U.S. cities also hosted a Partnership Walk, including Atlanta, Birmingham, Ala., Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Memphis, Tenn., Orlando, Fla., San Antonio and San Francisco.
The yearly walk helps to raise awareness of the extreme poverty suffered by others world-wide.
Student liaison Karim Farishta recruited 180 walkers to join the event, while persuading volunteers to help with the Kid Zone, recycling booth and registration table, according to a Clements High news release.
Farishta's dedication and hard work paid off, earning him the Ambassador of the Year award, presented by reporter and ABC 13 co-anchor Sharron Melton and Sugar Land Council member Amy Mitchell.
The Clements team raised more than $1,000 during the walk, which benefited the Agak Han Foundation, according to the release.
