Monthly Equity Spotlights

In the fall, Principal Martin Boyd, Marinela Diaz, and other Evans Jr. High School staff orchestrated Hispanic Professionals Events across several weeks in their building. They invited guest speakers who immigrated to the United States and obtained professional positions in the community.  The guest speakers included a physician, a journalist, a business manager, and an attorney.  These professionals have immigrated to the US from Venezuela, Mexico, and Columbia.  Students were engaged in conversations about navigating potential cultural and linguistic differences to thrive educationally and professionally. EJHS demonstrated intentional exposure to an exciting range of future opportunities.  

Dr. Zbrozek and the members Ekal celebrated Raksha Bandhan in December. This celebration of siblings in India was expanded to include relationships across other cultures.  The EKAL group invited others such as NIOS, BSU, AAPI, and others to join the celebration of familial relationships and unity.
