Students in the Film & Moving Image (FMI) first-year seminar created memory rocks, marked with inspirational movie quotes, for Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital as part of Stevenson's annual Mustangs Make a Difference Day, held last Friday, September 29. Pictured, above, are some of the students hard at work, and in the bottom right is FMI Chair Christopher Llewellyn Reed showing the rocks in their new home in one of the hospital's outdoor courtyards, where he delivered them earlier today.
