From Delaney Mertz:
My thanks to you and the Mount Horeb Rotary Club for sponsoring my attendance to the World Affairs Seminar! The speakers were really well-spoken and knowledgeable and I got to learn so much about cities. To give you some context, I am planning to study urban planning in college, so this seminar couldn't have come at a better time for me.
My favorite group of speakers were part of a panel conversation called "Community Development and the City". There were two women who lived in the Sherman Park neighborhood in Milwaukee and had both lost their sons to gun violence. They worked with a faculty member from UW-Milwaukee's School of Architecture and Urban Planning to create a community garden space in their neighborhood. The garden had a huge impact and through hosting events, many previously unemployed neighborhood residents got jobs and the level of gun violence decreased. It was really inspiring to hear about how these women, with everything they had gone through, had the strength and courage to stay in their neighborhood and help change it for the better. By just planting a garden, their whole environment changed. They were so wise and interesting to talk to. 
I will be honest, this seminar made me cry several times because of the power of some of these conversations. The speakers got very vulnerable and they all had incredible stories and experiences to share. 
I want to thank you again for making it possible for me to attend. The seminar was so well done and I will remember it forever. 
My best,
