Black History Month

By: Catrina Leone


We are one month into 2014, happy February! February is the month of love, with Valentine’s Day around the corner as well as the month to spread awareness for heart disease by wearing red. Not only is it the month for those amazing concepts, it is also Black History month. Today marked the beginning of a month full of great events honoring this purpose. Today was the opening ceremony with Monyka S. Price, Chief of Education as the guest speaker. Our very own Ciarra Nelson was there to witness this event! There are other events happening throughout the month which I will list for you:
