Black History Month Celebration
Impacting our Present, Influencing the Future
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education”. This year’s Black History Month celebration will highlight current War Eagles who have demonstrated true character by recognizing their accomplishments and achievements.
“The last few years, our celebrations have honored and recognized those individuals who laid the foundation at Wakulla High School, individuals who have excelled since graduating from WHS and who have made significant contributions to the greater Wakulla community. This year, the diversity committee decided to focus on our current students and highlight their contributions, achievements, and the legacy that they are creating,” said Sonia Clark-Rosier, Associate Dean and WHS Diversity Coordinator.
Mike Barwick, principal of Wakulla High School, states, “The goal of this year’s celebration is to ensure that students are educated about those individuals who came before them and paved the way for them to enjoy the liberties and freedoms they have today. Many of our students are already ‘substituting courage for caution’ in their everyday lives and we want to recognize their positive actions.”
This year’s theme is “Impacting our Present, Influencing the Future”.
