In June of 2020, our Superintendent and CEO, Dr. Tina Chekan, formally recognized Juneteeth as an official school holiday. This year, we will commemorate the holiday with a virtual Juneteeth event for our scholars. I am my Ancestors' Wildest Dreams: Conversations to Encourage, Uplift & Inspire, will take place Friday, June 11, beginning at 9 a.m. for scholars in grades 3-12.
Scholars will hear from influential African Americans across the region. Featured guests will share their accomplishments, dreams and encourage scholars. Each session will be divided into grade levels.
