The Trailblazers Program was created as a culminating event to recognize individuals who have found or created a path of success for students to follow. In addition to recognizing these individuals, the assembly also serves to inspire students to achieve goals they set for themselves throughout their lives.
Students throughout the district participate in activities all month long, including a writing competition, African-American guest speakers, a Living Museum, spirit week, spirit month, daily PSA’s, and a Black History video. We were excited to collaborate and synchronize our efforts throughout the district. This will become an annual celebration that we work on together and will work to improve upon each year.
