Casey Robbins has school named after her for donating books to Liberia
Wouldn’t you love to have an institution named after you? Casey Robbins is a high school student who already has a namesake school in Liberia named, Casey Robbins International School.
How is she so fortunate to have been honoured like this? Well, it took some hard work and Robbins never expected to get an award in the first place. The Sacramento teenager has used textbooks shipped to West Africa so they can be utilized by students there. She inaugurated her project Text Books for Liberia when she was in eighth grade when she heard that the African nation was helpless especially the children. ”I had noticed there were some textbooks just lying around in the staff room of my middle school. I asked the vice principal if I could have them and he said, okay if you can figure out how to get them there,” Robbins told News10.
For the last five years, Text Books for Liberia donates a container full of books. So far, it has shipped 14,000 old textbooks that were ready to be trashed. She met President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia, who thanked her for her efforts.
Robbins plans to donate books to other countries as well. See how you can help Text Books for Liberia and become part of a good cause.
