County Executive Isiah Leggett joined ESOL students from Sherwood High School at the premiere of the “Stories of Migrating Youth” exhibition at the Silver Spring Library on Oct. 7. The exhibition highlights the stories of students who have reunified with family members and formed a new life in Montgomery County. The books that were featured at the exhibit were developed by more than 30 ESOL students last fall. They learned bookbinding skills, participated in informal art therapy sessions, and created personal stories of their own migration to the United States.
