Wave for Diversity

Cheers to the students and staff at Edward R. Murrow H.S. for hosting the first-ever Diversity Wave on Oct. 24.

Over 1,000 students, staff and alumni got together to create a wave felt around the borough that celebrated the borough’s most diverse high school.

Physical Education teacher Theresa Crivelli, who was instrumental in creating the event, said: “After seeing many things that were going on in the news, I woke up one morning and thought, ‘I work at a place that is so diverse. Everyone is so different, and yet we are successful and happy.’ This thought transpired into this incredible event.”

The kids were only too happy to jump on board to organize, set up, and set the wave in motion.

“I am proud the students and staff came together to celebrate this school’s diversity,” said Principal Allen Barge when he welcomed all to the wave.

Standing O is proud of you too!
