Youth Tolerance Grant at AG Wright Middle School 2-2013
More than 100 students, teachers, and administrators attended the event at AG Wright MS on Friday, February 8, 2013 at 8:30 AM. Mr. Mauricio survived his arrest and torture by the Salvadoran police during the 1990s, the narrative of which he shared with the rapt audience. He spoke for almost an hour, and then he entertained students' questions for more than 30 minutes following his presentation. The Principal presented Mr. Mauricio with a "Thank You" gift of a school shirt. After that, a smaller group of students remained after to continue the discussion with Mr. Mauricio, and only when the Principal announced that lunch was soon to begin did the group disperse.
