Posted on 03/07/2024
In a celebration of educational excellence and history, Mt. Carmel Elementary School recently honored Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Divine Nine Greek organizations.

The school hosted the event as part of the AVID program to increase college and career readiness. HBCU Day and Divine Nine Day also spotlighted the role of the schools and organizations in shaping leaders.

Mt. Carmel students and staff participated by wearing apparel and accessories celebrating various HBCUs and Divine Nine organizations. From chucks and pearls to crimson and cream, students represented the legacy and contributions that these colleges, fraternities, and sororities have made to our society.

Principal Dr. Tenia Boone says it is important to celebrate these educational experiences, especially in an elementary setting. "This knowledge not only enriches their understanding of Black history but also inspires them to dream big and aim high."
