Black History Month, which is celebrated each year during February, is a chance for Americans to learn details of our nations history, unfortunately, are far too often neglected and pushed to the wayside. As the saying goes, black history is American history–and it’s a varied and rich history.
The Student Government Association, led by President Riviera Mew decided to a host/sponsor a Poster Contest for all the trades and classes. Posters, glue, markers and all supplies were provided the SGA. During the weekly business meeting trades proudly put their works of art on display. Each class shared with the audience the significance of their presentation.
Three staff members were asked to judge the presentation based on previously established criteria. It was an amazing display of talent and creativity.
The SGA offered financial prizes for the top three presentations. First prize went to Office Administration ($100.00), the second place winner was C.N.A. ($75.00) and 3rd place went to Pharmacy Tech ($50.00). It was another opportunity for students at the Jacksonville Job Corps Center to display leadership, talent and creativity.
