Description

A grant from the Harrisonburg Refugee Resettlement Office is supporting Dr. Kenneth R. Rutherford’s efforts to help new students who are from refugee families integrate smoothly into life at Harrisonburg High School. The pilot program, “The Harrisonburg Peer Leadership Program for Adolescents from Refugee Families,” will pair new students with students who were themselves refugees, but have settled into life in Harrisonburg after a few years.
