Service Libermann Luncheon

Date: Tuesday, November 17th, 2015
Time: Noon
Place: Africa Room

We will host our first Libermann Luncheon on Tuesday, September 20th at noon in the Africa Room. In collaboration with Alumni ‘s Homecoming festivities we are offering alum Teresa Madden Harrold (BA'07, MsEd '14) as our speaker. Her topic is "Teaching as an Act of Justice".

Tess has been teaching in inner-city schools since 2007. From working with Teach for America in Philadelphia to the Pittsburgh City school system, her passion for working with students on the margins remains central to her work. Tess will reflect on how her faith and time at Duquesne helped to craft her approach to teaching.

The service component of this offering is a request of attendees to consider donating school supplies from the list below. These much needed supplies will be donated to Taylor Allderdice High school, where Tess teaches.

· Pocket Folders

· poster paper

· multi-colored post-its

· 3 ring binders

· Cardstock

· Bookbags

· Biology Lab equipment (beakers, graduated cylinders, flasks)
