ROLE MODELS — Andonia Karnavezos, who teaches literacy at Rombout Middle School in Beacon, used a Current story about Matcha Thomas, a Black-owned business on Main Street, as a class reading. “Students loved reading about Haile Thomas and her success, and thought of their own ideas to bring to Main Street,” she said. “It’s super-important for students to see the impact that young people can have and how much success they can find.” (Photo provided)
