Congratulations to Jessica Schwartz, valedictorian of Sequoia High in Redwood City, who was named one of the 10 brightest students in the Bay Area by the San Francisco Chronicle. When asked who her hero was, she named none other than Jeff Steinberg, founder of Sojurn to the Past! With a debt of gratitude, we thank Jessica for the following statement: 

“Jeff Steinberg. He started Sojourn to the Past, a journey to the South that brings the civil rights movement to life. He is my hero for not only teaching me about nonviolence, justice, tolerance and forgiveness, but also spreading knowledge to thousands and thousands of students.”

Speaking of heros, we want to hear from you: who is your hero?
