RYE, N.Y. -- When the death of Nelson Mandela was announced on Thursday, Dec. 5, the Rye Country Day School Upper School organized an event for the next day to commemorate, celebrate, and reflect on the life of the former South African president.

About fifty students and faculty spent time talking about the life and works of Mandela, what he meant to them, and how they will remember him.

Stories, videos, art images, and recollections were all part of the memorial service.
