Upper School Boys of Color at Allen-Stevenson (BOCAS) Engage in Powerful Post-Election Conversation with Alumni

Upper School Boys of Color at Allen-Stevenson (BOCAS) students engaged in a powerful post-election conversation with some of our alumni of color.
The boys addressed different areas of election concerns, expressed their personal feelings about the election and complexities of the electoral college, and skillfully answered questions posed to them by alumni.

Clarence Agbi '02 asked the boys what issues would be of most concern to them if they were allowed to vote. They responded that climate change, immigration, health care, the economy, and COVID-19 were all issues of great concern.

The boy also displayed excellent media literacy skills to access information immediately in support of their argument around current unemployment in our country.

Thanks to Ralph Rella '93, Hasani Figueroa '10, Jaison Spain '97, Paul Coverdale '98, and Clarence Agbi '02 for leading this conversation and sharing great words of wisdom.

Allen-Stevenson’s distinctive “enlightened traditional” approach educates boys to become scholars and gentlemen.
