MUSE School – Sequoia Beaver


MUSE School ninth-grader Sequoia Beaver has demonstrated talent and grace while at MUSE. Beaver volunteers at the Skirball Center eight hours per month, facilitating children’s art projects. She led her high school classmates in a project to help clean up Corral Beach in Malibu, collecting 60 pounds of trash over five days. The project culminated with a formal letter written to President Obama, presenting a solution for the beach’s poor condition: to request that big corporations like Starbucks and McDonald’s use biodegradable materials to package their products. Beaver and her classmates received a letter of response from Obama, commending the class for its efforts. In addition to helping the environment, Beaver is in an accelerated academic program at MUSE, allowing her to co-enroll at Pierce College for a course in critical thinking.
