A Photo with the Mayor



Visitors from Amgen Foundation dropped in to see Mayor Marc Saldarriaga and the rest of his City Hall staff at Exchange City this week! Pictured here from Amgen, along with the mayor’s excellent judicial and law enforcement personnel, are Kathy Demarest, Executive Director, Quality Analytical Labs; Christina Evon, Associate, Corporate Communications & Philanthropy; and John Ackermann, Director, Quality Assurance. We are very grateful to Amgen Foundation for generously supporting our programs for Crusaders.

Exchange City, a project of Education in Action located at Johnson & Wales Harborside campus, gives middle school students the opportunity to take charge of their own civic and business enterprises. While they were in residence this week, Crusaders ran businesses, created and sold products, learned about personal and commercial banking, and took responsibility for making Exchange City a good place to live and work. Here below are scenes from the post office, the newspaper, the sports shop, and the bank!
