Swainsboro High School’s Black History Program, A Huge Success


Swainsboro High School ended Black History month with a successful Black History Program. This year’s theme was “HBCU’s and Their Contributions”. The guest speaker was class of 2011 alumna, Deidra Jordan. Deidra is a proud graduate of the great Bethune-Cookman University, a historically black college/university located in Daytona Beach Florida. Jordan discussed prominent African Americans and the noteworthy impact that her experience at an HBCU has had on her as well as the impact that HBCU’s have had on society.

Students in all grade levels participated in making this year’s program a success. Guests were educated on the history of HBCU’s, the impact of HBCU’s, and treated to powerful musical selections. This year’s program committee consisted of assistant principal, Jonathan Moses, senior counselor, Monica Y. Pace, and teacher, Coach Alexandria Walden including students Danaria Phillips and Jayla Travett.

Several of Emanuel County's retired educators and local HBCU alumni were present at this great event.
