This morning, students in grades two through eight enjoyed a presentation by Ms. Xernona Clayton, an African-American civil rights leader and pioneering broadcasting executive. Ms. Clayton worked closely with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Coretta Scott King and is the founder, president, and CEO of the Trumpet Awards Foundation, which highlights African American accomplishments and contributions. Our students heard Ms. Clayton’s first-hand account of interactions with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Rosa Parks as well as her personal advice on being the best person you can be, treating everyone with kindness and respect, and doing everything you can to make a positive impact in your world. It was an absolute privilege to host Ms. Clayton and have her share her life lessons and stories with our students. Many thanks to Mrs. Debbie Masterson for arranging this phenomenal presentation.
