Congratulations to climate activist and current senior Jamie Margolin ’20 who was featured in The Seattle Times this morning, September 17, 2019. Jamie is the Founder and Co-Executive Director of Zero Hour, the international youth climate-action organization behind the July 2018 Youth Climate March in 26 U.S. cities. Jamie was also responsible for organizing the Student Walkout for school safety, for which she created and chaired a committee and led the walkout.
Jamie explains, “We are at a crucial time in human history where change must be made in order to combat the climate crisis. I step up to be a leader in my activism because our world needs leaders to combat the issues our society is facing. HNA has helped me become a leader by supporting my activism.”
Holy Names Academy is proud to support students like Jamie in exploring their passions both inside and outside of school.
