Students at Jackson Careers and Technology present their Black History Program 

The students at Jackson Careers and Technology presented the school’s Black History Program to their peers, faculty/staff, and their community.

Students from Mr. Wells’ Seventh Grade English Class prepared poetry and essay stories that they memorized and recited throughout the program. As well as the seventh graders presenting the homily for the program, the Choir students from all grades performed songs they learned during class.  

Pastor Mychal Hunt told his story about how you can change your black history through your actions. The students all responded well to his message because he told his story through rap. Everyone student that was asked to reflect on Mr. Hunt’s message responded in the same way, “I never thought I could change my history until he reassured me that I could.”  

Overall, the adults that attended the event were pleased with how the students presented the program as well, as how they responded to the message given that day.
