MLK day festivities hold vast array of voices

The MLK day observation day, held Thursday, Jan. 24, brought in numerous opportunities for students to broaden their perspectives on the community and each other.

For the second year in a row, West High held its annual MLK day celebration. Sessions included a variety of topics from teaching African Dance all the way to volunteering at the Johnson County Crisis Center. The day focused on understanding others’ perspectives and building a  community for students of all backgrounds.
