Harvie ES students ‘touch’ history





History, past and present, came to life Feb. 16 as Harvie Elementary School students portrayed some of the most influential African American entertainers, scientists, athletes, doctors, political and military figures in American history as part of the school’s “Touch Museum.”

“Some people might not feel safe anywhere because they have had hard things happening to them, and I have the background to help that person reground and feel safe in the group,” Jacobson said. > Read more.
