Sitting at the Feet of Our Elders

Denise Currie | February 17, 2017


Very inspiring and interesting stories were shared during the annual Sitting at the Feet of Our Elders program for Black History Month. Thank you to the wonderful speakers: ’39 graduate and WHS Hall of Fame field hockey player Mary Moody; her daughter Veronica Hughes ’60, who was the first African-American student at West End; former administrator Calvin Ferguson ’57; former district social worker Gloria Goode; and WHS school monitor Acquanetta Allen! Thank you also to junior Morgan Kersey, who performed a beautiful, moving song she wrote to kick off the assembly.
