Because Sometimes it’s Nice to Get a Pat on the Back


Hi Mel,

Thanks so much for your speedy reply, and for permission to use these awesome photos! I especially liked the one in the library with the “sun” glasses.  🙂       With regard to our school program, we have started a new nonprofit foundation (UnityWorks) and recently launched a pilot program in Yakima, starting with 4 schools – including Davis High. Our goals are to educate staff and students about living in a diverse society, to promote culturally-responsive teaching, to increase equity and reduce prejudice, to improve race relations, to raise graduation rates, to close achievement and opportunity gaps, and to encourage positive multicultural change. You can read more on our website: <>  > click on Programs.  Please feel free to share with anyone who might be interested.

Thanks also for the good work you do in helping kids get to college. You are a gifted photographer and the spirit of these kids really shines through.

With appreciation,
