Students on field trip

Bryan Meltz

Thousands of area students visit the Michael C. Carlos Museum every year, where they encounter the belongings of Egyptian and African kings, South American poetry written with cotton threads, and other ancient treasures that bring to life histories and cultures from around the world. Sara Schlesinger and her husband, John, are helping to ensure the students keep coming with a $25,000 donation that will allow bus transportation for Title 1 schools in the area. Since the recession, fewer schools have been able to send students to the museum, particularly those in low-income neighborhoods.
