On Wed., Nov. 30, eight Nobles students traveled to Philadelphia to participate in the National Association of Independent Schools' Student Diversity Leadership Conference. This three-day event brings together close to 1,500 independent high school students from across the country.  These students, from myriad racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, religious, and sexual-orientation backgrounds, all share a passion for diversity work in their schools.  According to the official NAIS Conference program, the SDLC allows students the opportunity to "explore issues of social justice, practice authentic expression, stretch [their] thinking on self and society, and prepare for effective advocacy in independent schools."

Nobles students will blog about their experience while they're away—click here to follow them.
