The Bamberg Job Corps Center will be celebrating Black History Month the week of February 21-27th. We know that the month of February is “Black History Month.” It is always good to recognize and make known to our students the importance of Black History. For next week, we do have some speakers that will come to speak with the students beginning on Monday. On Wednesday, at 6:00 p.m., there will be a Black History Program. All Staff and students are invited and encouraged to attend.
