Four hours of a TV documentary series on the effectiveness of the national “Challenge Days” program in high schools will be aired this Saturday, Feb. 11, from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. on the Logo cable TV channel. The “Challenge Days” program has been provided for juniors at George Mason High School in Falls Church every year since 2006.
It caused strongly favorable comments from students reported in GMHS’ Lasso Online student newspaper. “I loved getting to know my classmates for who they really are, and not by rumors,” said one. “I saw sides of people I never thought I would see,” said another. “The only thing I felt in the room by the end of the day was love and compassion.”
