Black History Month highlights the accomplishments and contributions of African Americans throughout history. The Multicultural Student Center reflected that goal. In a Feb. 16 event called Past and Present Heroes, MSC honored African Americans from the 1800s to present day.

The more popular people, like Martin Luther King, Jr. and Harriet Tubman, were included.
A few fundraising events in which our council has carried out include a Tie-Dye booth, countless bake sales, raffles, and the Color Fest. In addition to Student Council, I am responsible and dependable as a student and fellow peer.

This is where the students get to perform any kind of talent they possess in front of the school and community members that choose to come. The activities and events we host are always very fun and exciting. I have been a volunteer since my freshman year of high school, which is when they allow you to be a volunteer. Before that you may participate in the activities. I feel that this volunteer project does benefit both me and the recipients, because I get to experience such an amazing act of kindness that changes a person 's life forever.
I think that this activity gave me the extra push I needed because over Thanksgiving break I spoke up to one of my family members for the first time ever when they said something negative about Black people. I know that I still have an incredible amount of progress to make, and that it is something that I should have been doing all along, but I am still glad that I finally made a step in the right direction. In addition to continuing to speak up against people who are participating in racism in my presence I also need to continue to be aware of current events in the future. Every once in a while we would have a discussion in class about what’s been going on in the media, and almost half of the time I was not aware of what was going on until somebody brought it up in class. I cannot expect to be a good ally if I do not stay educated about what is going on in our country and around the world with respect to minorities.
