Finley students had the unique opportunity to attend WE Day at Rockefeller Center in New York City on April 6.

WE Day brings together world-renowned speakers and award-winning performers with tens of thousands of young people to celebrate their contributions and kick-start another year of change.

Finley students were invited to attend the event thanks to their school’s collaboration with international charity and educational partner WE Free the Children. As part of that relationship, members of the school’s Kiwanis Builders Club, National Junior Honor Society and Student Council, created a food pantry at the school to assist Glen Cove families in need. They also raised enough funds to feed 10 children lunch for a year in Sierra Leone, Africa.

At WE Day, students heard from former astronaut Buzz Aldrin, Mia Farrow, Martin Luther King III and many others. The students enjoyed an unforgettable experience.
