Arcadia Junior, Nina Vuletic, is the brains and the talent behind the stunning Kindness Banner that appeared on campus last Friday. Nina, a member of the Arcadia Student Advisory Board, made this contribution as a part of the organization's Kindness Awareness Week activities. Our community is grateful to the ASAB for reminding us all to treat one another with kindness, and especially to Nina for sharing her time and talents with this beautiful message and spectacular banner!
