Kimberly Ortiz Alpizar, 11th grade, has won Second Place for 10th to 12th Grade in the Anti-Defamation League's Essay Contest, "A Tribute to Moral Courage: Standing up Against Injustice." She will receive a monetary prize and will be honored at an online ceremony on April 28th.
She had to research some key figures of the Holocaust, who exemplified moral courage, and then write an essay about a contemporary individual who she felt most exemplified this quality. She picked Scott Warren, from No More Deaths, in Tucson, Arizona. He was arrested for his work providing humanitarian assistance to immigrants crossing the desert from Mexico into Arizona. This case has been in the news in the last few years.
She was inspired to write about him because of a guest speaker she heard in US History class this winter - Alizah Simon - who is on the staff of No More Deaths, and discussed the work of the organization with the students.
