A Student with Courage

During this year’s Field Day at Landing School a special ceremony was held honoring Yasmin Fakhry.

Last November, Yasmin was the recipient of a successful life-saving operation.  The healing process was slow and Yasmin has made wonderful strides over the past six months. 

While her loving family and relatives, including her sister Latifa, have been there for her every step of the way on her road to recovery, Yasmin has had to cope with being taken away from another special family—her teachers and friends at Landing School. 

“It’s been said that ‘The only thing greater than the power of the mind is the courage of the heart,’ said Landing physical education teacher Karen Serani. “Yasmin has been an outstanding model of strength, perseverance, and determination.  For this, we are proud to present her with Landing School’s Courage Award.”
