Beaver Student Makes News with Africa Book Drive

Evan Feldberg-Bannatyne '16

With donations from Beaver families and from his elementary school (Mason-Rice) and other local groups, Evan has collected over new and gently used 1,400 books for schools and libraries in Swaziland. He is still working to collect several hundred more books by the end of the year to reach his goal of 2,000.

Beaver Middle School Director Jorge Valcarcel said, “I am very proud of Evan, who in the true Beaver spirit, saw a need, thought creatively about possible solutions, became involved and inspired his school, family, and community to help out. Evan’s concern for the edification of others is heartwarming.”

Note: The TAB article contains one factual error; the book drive is not Evan’s bar mitzvah project for Evan (he’s not having one).
