At an assembly at Whitmer High School, Amiol Arop, one of the 'Lost Boys of the Sudan,' teaches students and school mascot Pete Panther an African tribal dance. There was a serious side to the assembly: The 'Lost Boys' told the students of their fleeing the genocide in their country in the 1980s. The five representatives of the 'Lost Boys' raise funds for improvements to their homeland. Whitmer students raised $3,000 toward digging a water well in the Darfur region of Sudan.
