Black History Celebration

South High School (SHS) welcomed former students, staff, and the community as part of the Annual Black History Luncheon and Assembly.  This year’s theme focused on the crucial role of education in the history of African Americans.  

“These events allow us to reflect and celebrate all cultures and ethnicities on our campus, while remembering the struggles and honoring the journey of how we got where we are today.” - Connie Grumling, Principal, SHS 

The assembly featured poetry and singing, and the entire event was organized by SHS staff and the Black Student Union.

The luncheon treated visitors to a delicious southern meal of chicken, turkey, collard greens, black-eyed peas, yams, cornbread, lemonade, and a table full of tasty desserts! 

This was the first year that students, Aries Harris and Mario Marquez, participated in the festivities, with both saying how much they enjoyed their role as hosts and meeting the guests.

All donations and proceeds will benefit the BSU scholarship fund at SHS.
