JACKSON Tenn.- Jackson Phi Delta Kappas held their annual Black History Month celebration Sunday in Downtown Jackson.

This year's theme was "Positioning Youth in the Pursuit of Excellence," and everyone was on their feet for the celebration.

Several awards were handed out to leaders in the community, and two local students were honored for their work in the classroom.

Organizers said they feel blessed to give back to kids in the area.

Jackson's Phi Delta Kappa chapter currently has 45 members, who are all local educators.
