Congratulations to Davis 7th Graders Maqueline Weiss (center of photo) and friends (L to R) Molly Antebi, Zoe Starr, Rachel Murray and Jenna Holland who were interviewed for WSB-TV's People 2 People program.  Maqueline, a Type 1 diabetic, is a spokesperson for diabetes education and research.  The girls related the story about how they were actually able to help  Maqueline during a medical emergency on a school field trip because Maqueline had educated them on what to do. Click here (find the JDRF program) to view the WSB People 2 People program in which they appeared.
