For the second year in a row, art students, along with teacher Mrs. Magen Newman, worked on a venture called The Memory Project. The students were sent photographs of children from Haiti who are neglected, orphaned or disadvantaged, and were asked to create a portrait based off the photo. These portraits were given back to the children. Ben Schumaker, Founder and Director of The Memory Project, has worked hard with the members of his team since 2004 to give children with few personal keepsakes something to call their own.
