Edward R. Murrow H.S. students learn about AIDS
World AIDS Day was Tuesday, and students at Edward R. Murrow High School in Midwood are learning about the disease all week.
The school hung five massive quilts around campus in honor of AIDS victims.
The quilts come from around the world to help students understand the magnitude of the disease.
"Every time I do this event, it always gives me energy to go out through the day," says student volunteer Nicholas Campbell. "I always, throughout the whole year, look forward to this and it just gives me inspiration."
About 50,000 people become infected with HIV, the virus that leads to AIDS, in the United States every year, according to student volunteers.
Guest speakers will reach out to students at assemblies and information sessions all week.
