Author Wes Moore at Peter Paul Development Center
At The Peter Paul Development Center this morning, children will meet a well known author today. Wes Moore was the keynote speaker at the Center’s 31st anniversary gala last night.
The sell-out event, entitled Amazing Grace, was held at Mead Westvaco’s headquarters on Main Street.
Washington: Wes Moore was able to tell his story, and the difference caring adults make in the life choices of young people.
The Center’s Director, the Reverend Lynne Washington, explained that Moore is a Rhodes Scholar who served as a Captain in the US Army in Afghanistan. "The Other Wes Moore" is his first book.
Washington: We are excited this morning because Wes Moore will be here at the Peter Paul Development Center with young people from the fifth and sixth grades of Woodfield School, Fairfield School, young people from the Anna Julia Cooper Episcopal School and from the Church Hill Academy. My hope is that him telling his story will enliven some child to make some right decisions.
