Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Project

Our middle school currently has a small but robust athletic program led by our Athletic Director. In this coming year, I will be assisting the volleyball team in various capacities but not coaching at this time. Volleyball has the HIGHEST resource need. Our team needs volleyballs, bags, and air pumps that will help us Bump, Set, Spike and Win! Our other sports are also in need of basic equipment included in the cart. Sports such as football, basketball, softball and baseball help us keep our students focused and safe outside of regular school hours!
