Firebirds in the Spotlight
Last year, seven of Cyndi Kuchera's students wrote letters to the city of Albuquerque arguing for a covered bus stop on Rainbow Blvd. in front of Tony Hillerman MS - and the city listened! Based upon the kids' input, the city researched the area, agreed that it was a good place for a stop, and used some of their federal funds to build the shelter. The students were able to take part in the dedication on Thursday, August 29. It made the Albuquerque Journal and is currently featured on the home page of the APS website.
Congratulations to all of them for a job well done!
