Community Report: Bobcats and Lowe’s Celebrate Black History Month
By Kate Hussmann
February 14, 2014
In honor of Black History Month, the Bobcats have teamed up with Lowe's to highlight high achieving students at Garinger High School who are participating in the EverFi 306 program.
The 306 program, named after the Harlem artist collective "Group 306," was created to revolutionize the way students learn about African American History. The digital learning platform provides students with an interactive educational experience that brings historical events to life and "inspires students with stories of grit, strength, intellect and creativity."
The Bobcats and Lowe's took a trip to Garinger High School to see the 306 program in action and interview students about how the program is enhancing their learning experience. We also asked them what they have learned about African American History throughout their studies and invited them to share what these historical events mean to them personally. Take a look at what these five amazing students had to say in the videos below.
