Periclean Scholars raise money for relief efforts in "Dance for Haiti" event

The Periclean Scholars Class of 2012, led by sophomores Katie Kenney and Aisha Mitchell, raised more than $1,000 this month during a dance fundraiser to benefit the Children’s Nutrition Program of Haiti.

The scholars held their Feb. 4 “Dance for Haiti” at the Lighthouse, where visitors were asked to donate $5 toward relief efforts in the island nation still digging out from a January earthquake that killed more than 200,000 people.

Courtney Latta ’09, a Periclean Scholar while at Elon, had been interning for the CNP when the quake hit. She visited campus a week later to talk with students about her experiences.
