Return of the Restorative Justice Program!

October 2021

The restorative justice PE program is back at Dudley under the leadership of our very own Dr. Michael Hemphill! After spending a year on the sideline due to Covid, the program returned to Dudley in October to 30 eager students ready to integrate life skills and learn martial arts skills. Dr. Hemphill is joined by Dr. Jeremy Rinker and several excellent graduate students. This is a critical component in helping our schools to provide social emotional learning to students. We look forward to expanding the opportunity to Smith High School and beyond in the very near future thanks to a very generous grant from Edward M.Armfield, Jr. Foundation!
