Welcome to the Kitsap Peninsula

Out of the Darkness Community Walk
Saturday, September 23, 2017

 

Losing someone to suicide or struggling with a mental illness can feel like no one understands what you are going through.  Unlike other illnesses, it is difficult to look at someone and know their connection.

The Out of the Darkness Community Walk is a journey of remembrance and a walk that unites a community – a time to acknowledge the ways in which suicide and mental illness have affected our lives and our loved ones. We all wear honor beads – each color shows our personal connection to the cause, and helps us identify others who understand our experience

From thousands of applicants across the country, Lewis has been selected as one of 15 winners through the inaugural Hilton Honors Teacher Treks Travel Grant Competition. The grants are meant to enhance classroom environments by giving instructors first-hand experience in the field working in their area of expertise.

Lewis was chosen last month as one of 30 finalists by a panel of judges. He was selected as a winner through popular vote. He contacted Inside Bainbridge today with his good news, saying “I wanted to thank you for your article about the Teacher Trek Grant. It helped get the word out, and I just found out I won the grant!!!”
