Seniors Step-up, Share History

A group of senior students recently asked permission to create a bulletin board in the high school hall to draw students’ attention to the importance of Black History Month. They spent a few hours one afternoon putting it together, and it features both well- and not-so-well-known African-Americans who have made significant contributions to culture, science, human rights, and every other aspect of our nation’s history.

These history-minded student-leaders plan to change pictures and short bios regularly, in order to feature a wide variety of influential black Americans during the entire month of February. Perhaps one day, future Hillcrest students will shine a spotlight on them!
