Hunt Lecture Series Speakers Discuss Efforts to Help Refugee Children at Risk

On Friday, May 4 Belmont Hill welcomed Katie Murphy of International Rescue Committee and Nada Elattar of Sesame Street to speak about the joint efforts of their two organizations toward bringing education to refugee children at risk because of displacement and effects of war. 

The powerful and at times moving talk gave the boys a stark view of the lives of refugees, especially young children who have known nothing but chaos and strife in their young lives. 

The Hunt Lecture Series, established in 2012 by Belmont Hill parents Bill and Yuko Hunt, brings speakers to campus who model global citizenship and can inspire generations of Belmont Hill boys to embrace the challenges and opportunities of an interconnected world. Director of Global Education Adam Harder introduced the speakers.
