“Knowledge Is Power” @ Henderson Academy

Henderson Academy’s Solar Girls hosted a play called “Knowledge Is Power”. This play was put on by members of DTE’s Clean and Green Team. “Knowledge is Power” is a play designed to introduce the idea of renewable energy sources to our youth. Henderson’s 2nd-5th grade classes were invited out to watch the play and had so much fun! Shout out to Ms. Hill, Ms. Harris, and principal Barclay for their participation. Congrats to all for a job well done!
