  • BFA Senior Adele McLees speaks to Star-C Programs Breakfast


    Adele McLees, volunteer at the 3-Star afterschool program in Clarkston spoke to the organization’s monthly programs breakfast. She shared the story of how her ballet injury led to a calling in the refugee community.  Adele has volunteered as a tutor with the after-school program at Willow Branch Apartments in Clarkston over the last several years as part of her Work-Study Program at Ben Franklin Academy.

    The apartments are affordable housing primarily occupied by refugee families. As a result of her experiences with the children at Willow Branch, Adele plans to pursue her interests in human rights as she attends
