Strough/RFA students traveled to Syracuse on November 19th to run with Chase Coleman, a Corcoran high school student with autism who was pushed to the ground at a cross-country race in October. Hundreds came out to support and encourage Coleman to keep running. The story hit the national news in October when it happened.
The Strough Science Department at the Cypress campus organized a ‘Cell Organelle Campaign’. Students worked collaboratively in small groups to identify what they felt were the most important organelle* of a cell.
