Hurray for A.S.C.!

A $10,000 grant from the Kathryn Wasserman Davis "100 Projects for Peace" program will help Agnes Scott students support an Atlanta-wide arts activism project entitled Fighting Domestic Violence, Creating Domestic Peace.

Students helping to plan Agnes Scott's Project for
Peace include, from left, Margaret McMillian '10, Nancy
Thebaut '08, Shannon Yarbrough '09, Rocio Rodriguez
'09 and Meg Beyer '10.

"We hope that Fighting Domestic Violence, Creating Domestic Peace will inspire community building, policy changes and awareness among all Atlantans of how individuals can fight against domestic violence through the decoration of a simple tile," said Nancy Thebault, Agnes Scott student organizer for the Saturday, May 26 project - part of the Decatur Arts Festival.

Of the 65 colleges and universities selected to be affiliated with the KWD 100 Projects for Peace program to confront domestic violence, Agnes Scott is the sole representative from Georgia.

Theatrical performances, musical ensembles, a picnic and the opportunity for each participant to paint a tile depicting how his or her life has been affected by domestic violence will ensure the day's memorable quality.
