Celebrating Black History Month
We were honored, this month, to be invited to join North and South Middle Schools at their Black History Month assemblies. At both schools teachers, administration, and students teamed up to showcase the students’ talent through music and dance. The assemblies also featured video presentations that shared the history and accomplishments of members of the African-American community.
On Friday, Olympic gold-medalist Vicky Bullett spoke to the students at North Middle School and encouraged students to work hard and plan to achieve their goals. Ms. Bullett emphasized that, “”Having a goal without a plan is just a wish.”
The Martinsburg Police Department firmly believes that making a positive impact on our youth is the key to ensuring a vibrant, safe community in the future. We’re grateful to have been a part of the schools’ Black History Month celebrations.
