Albany Law School’s Director of Diversity Affairs, Pershia Wilkins welcomed fourteen grade school students and their tutors to our campus on Saturday, June 11th. Currently, seven Albany Law School students works with this literacy program, located in Arbor Hill, in the city of Albany. During the past four years, our students have acted as tutors to the children — assisting them with honing their reading, math and writing skills, acting as mentors and supporters of their future endeavors. The students and tutors visit Albany Law School’s campus three times per year. This visit is an annual celebration of the end of a very successful school year. The children were joined by Mr. Leroy Graham, the Director of the Program, The Honorable Helena Heath-Roland, Albany City Court Judge and mentor, along with other tutors from: University at Albany, The College of St. Rose and Albany Medical College. They were treated to a delicious breakfast and lunch catered by Four Corners Luncheonette. It was a fun event for all.
