Turning the Page for Change!




On a sunny afternoon in June, public school parents, students, educators, and advocates gathered at the University of the Arts to socialize, eat, and most importantly support the Public School Notebook “Turning the Page for Change” event.

A highlight of the annual June celebration is the student journalism awards. Allegra Black (left), a junior at Roxborough, won for “Editing” for her work on The Ridge Record; Marian Liu (second from right), junior at Masterman, won for “Editorial Writing” for a commentary on Hurricane Katrina in Masterman Voices; and Elizabeth Curry (far right), a junior at Northeast, won for “Feature Writing” for her article on teen suicide for The Northeast Megaphone. Presenting on behalf of the Notebook were event committee volunteer Erica Young (speaking) and Notebook board member Dee Phillips.

Special thanks to “Front Page Sponsor” Holy Family University, and thanks to all the sponsors, hosts and volunteers who helped with the event. Contact the Notebook at for information about the June 2007 event.
