Do you have a question about JRI services?
Granite Academy was honored to welcome William Kamkwamba, author of “The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind” to the school. He impacted all in attendance as he shared his personal journey, connected with students & explored the true value of education, innovation and spirit. He shared his own experiences of overcoming internal and external obstacles, as well as who his strongest influences were in helping him to achieve his goals. William was truly an inspiration for our students (and staff too!).
In anticipation of William’s arrival, both students and staff read his book provoking discussions of politics, science, family structures, famine, climate change, and the power of knowledge. Students were proud to share their “The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind”-inspired projects with William. Meeting William Kamkwamba has been a life-changing experience for everyone at Granite Academy!
