Maharishi Middle School Students Attend Middle School Diversity Leadership

Four Maharishi Middle School students attended the annual Middle School Diversity Leadership Conference in St. Louis.

They participated in workshops, simulations, and activities to broaden their awareness of diversity issues and promote advocacy for others. The eighth grade students, Melat Gibramarian, Jivani Rodriguez, Caleb Mullenneaux, and Philip Winer, were accompanied by the Head of Maharishi School Dr.Beall, and Mrs. Beall.

The students learned strategies for helping support their peers, even in challenging situations. Jivani commented, "It’s hard to stand up for someone, but it is important to do so. We need to be an ally for one another, and reach out to anyone in need."

The event was organized for November 15 by Randolph Carter, Director of Eastern Educational Resource Collaborative and former Director of Diversity and Multicultural Services for the National Association of Independent Schools in Washington, DC. Randolph is also a long-time TM teacher and practitioner. Maharishi School hopes to host Mr. Carter for student and faculty diversity workshops this spring.
