Inauguaration Central

Posted by Laura Losch on January 19, 2009

A fellow Media Specialist at Creekview High School has put together a great Pageflakes about the inauguration.

Would South Hall have so many different races and ethnicities if it weren’t for King? I know that’s hard for some of you to grasp – a school with only one skin color. It does seem weird – even to me. I’ve always attended schools with other students of different ethnicities. But we should celebrate our wonderful diversity at South Hall and know that we have one amazing man to thank for that – Martin Luther King, Jr.

See you in the library!
