HMS Wisdom Squad creates display of life lessons

Zachary D'Amico

The HMS Wisdom Squad on Tuesday, May 10, hosted Deepak Ramola, one of the lead researchers on Project FUEL. This organization has been training students on gathering life lessons from HMS teachers and the stories that accompany those life lessons.

Under the direction of Dr. Melissa Survinski, a team of HMS students, called the Wisdom Squad, has been working since November to interview, analyze, and create graphic displays of these lessons, which are now hanging by the Auxiliary Gym at HMS in the new HMS Wisdom Corridor. The Wisdom Squad interviewed 13 teachers for the HMS Wisdom Wall project. 

This is a living project that HMS will continue to add to each year, and the work will eventually be part of the Pittsburgh Wisdom Corridor next spring.

HMS was chosen by Avonworth Primary Center to be a pilot school for the Pittsburgh version of this project, and students have been meeting virtually with Deepak since December. Based out of India, Project FUEL believes that everyone has a life lesson to share, and we, as humans, need to learn from those stories that led to the life lessons of as many people as we can.
