Students took a break from the text books and celebrated the achievements of those who came before them.

Wednesday’s title of their Black History program was Celebrating the Legacy.

There was a performance from the dance team at North Parkway Middle School and a dance team from the community. 2019 Miss Tennessee Brianna Mason was also there to speak to students.

“I just cheer them up, like when I help people. It makes me feel better to make them feel better,” fourth grader Aalayah Harris said.
