Mr. Blair, along with seniors enrolled in the Comparative Religious Ethics elective, participated in a video conference with students from the Islamic Educational College in Jordan. Mr. Blair was originally scheduled to join the video conference remotely, but instead made a surprise visit to Regis High School to join the student discussion in person. Mr. Blair shared with the group, “We succeed best when we accept the obligation to build bridges of understanding through learning about others’ faith, and are prepared to deal in humility and respect with those who don’t understand.” Click here to read more about his visit.
