Atlanta educators, local leaders, and students came together on Thursday, Feb. 25 to honor Dr. Charles R. Drew — the namesake of Atlanta’s first charter school. Former Atlanta Mayor Andrew Young spoke at Drew Charter School about Dr. Drew’s work as a doctor, medical researcher, and inventor.
The school says Drew was “instrumental in developing blood plasma processing, storage and transformation therapy. His groundbreaking work has saved untold lives and paved the way for today’s American Red Cross blood program.”
The school focuses on STEAM – science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. Here are a few photos from the day, sent to Decaturish by Drew Charter School.
