On Thursday, February 13, 2019 our lunch speaker was Terry Dunleavy from Relief Through Leadership. RTL was started by Dr. Jim McKee, Superintendent of District 117, and Jim's wife who is from Puerto Rico.  The McKee's were moved to do something for Puerto Rico after the devastation of Hurricane Maria in 2017.   The McKees eventually formed RTL, which sent a team of volunteers to Rafeal de Jesus High School in Puerto Rico in the summer of 2019. That service trip brought 40 bilingual educators from the US to “Teach the teachers“ in Puerto Rico.  The 40 volunteers delivered 350 refurbished Chromebooks, and attracted 89 educators from around Puerto Rico to learn how to use the Chromebooks in their classrooms.  Plans for a future service trips to Puerto Rico are in the works, but RTL can use you help.  Give money, spread the word, raise funds, join a service trip, and talk to you your local school district about what they do with their used Chromebooks. School districts in Illinois typically discard Chromebooks after only three years, but those computers can be refurbished and very useful to educators and school children in Puerto Rico.  For more information, visit http://reliefthroughleadership.com/
