It’s one thing to study an international crisis in high school, and another thing to do something about it. Pacific High School students Tatyanna Isaacs and Jenny Jeter learned about high rates of maternal mortality in Somaliland in Hillary Seeland’s Global Issues class. The pair independently organized and held an Indian Taco sale last fall (that’s taco fixings served on classic Southeast Alaskan fry bread) and raised over $500. Here, they’re dropping the check in the mail to the Friends of the Edna Adan University Hospital in Somaliland. Way to walk the talk… uh, taco… ladies!
