"I like how empowered she (Annie) was. She had such strength behind everything she said. There was such purpose. She wanted us to understand and convey the power we have over our own lives and to never give up," said Gateway freshman, Livia Shepard, after her inspirational video conferencing visit with Annie Bleiburg. One of the visits was cut short but will be rescheduled for May or June, thanks to support from the Gateway Education Foundation. (Article written by District librarian Bill Brown).
