Celebrating Black History Jubilee Style

Because of the support of donors like you, our students are able to celebrate their heritage and strive to reach their potential in a safe, faith-based environment. Students of St John Catholic School hosted their annual Black History program, "Words Have Power."  Family, friends and students gathered in the gym to march, sing, listen to dynamic guest speakers from the community and watch terrific performances from both professional and student dancers. High-profile black leaders in the Memphis community talked to the students encouraging them to do their best and leading by example. State Representative, Raumesh Akbari, spoke about how making good choices today opens up opportunities tomorrow. Other speakers included Shelby County Commissioner Eddie Jones, Fox 13 Newsman Jeremy Pierre, Memphis Police Department Deputy Chief Rowena Adams, Retirement Plan Counselor Sarah Jones and First Lady of the Boulevard Bridget Nicole-Turner. The children also enjoyed a professional dance performance from the Collage Dance Collective headed by Executive Director Marcellus Harper. The day was wrapped up with a visit from Eddie Eagle of the Memphis Police Department and a demonstration on gun accident prevention.

When you invest in Jubilee Catholic Schools, you invest in Memphis.
