Saturday Art Walk
On February 8, 2014 Board member Farrell, Principal Green and student Shaquanda Maddox joined several community members at the Dr. Carter G. Woodson Museum for a night of visual art, poetry, jazz and vocalists. Shaquanda performed during the event (as a last minute request) and did a wonderful job. She had the opportunity to share her story and make a number of connections to both assist her in pursuing her dream of singing and finding a job to assist her family.
Principal Green made several community connections, including a potential partnership with the museum to showcase student talents at upcoming events, mentoring from several community members and partnering with ACT Right to assist students in finding employment, pursuing their dreams and linking with community mentors.
