Siebel Scholar Sarah Hemminger Presents at White House Event on Social Entrepreneurship

ARTICLE BY: The Hub

Johns Hopkins University

June 5th 2016

Sarah Hemminger (Johns Hopkins BioE ’10), presented at a White House event titled "The Front Lines of Social Innovation: Models for Change from Baltimore City."

Johns Hopkins University President Ronald J. Daniels was among the featured guests Monday evening at a White House event that brought together leaders from government, nonprofit organizations, and public policy groups to discuss social entrepreneurship in Baltimore.

Hemminger co-founded Thread, a Baltimore-based organization that brings together teams of volunteers to support underperforming students from the city's public high schools.

Thread weaves a new social fabric by connecting students, university and community-based volunteers, and collaborators. By radically and permanently reconfiguring the social support structure of all involved, Thread breaks the cycle of crime, poor educational and economic outcomes and replaces it with a new cycle of educational attainment, service and social well-being.
