On Friday, February 9, the Centennial Delta Scholars will hold their fourth annual Food for the Soul, Words for the Heart event from 6 to 8 p.m. in the cafeteria. In observation of Black History Month, there will be cuisine and student performances that are connected to African American culture. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door, and can be purchased from Mrs. Holt in Room 501.
The Delta Scholars Program is an honor society for the empowerment of African American girls. Food for the Soul, Words for the Heart is the Centennial Delta Scholars’ signature event.
“They created the event to bring awareness of the many African American contributions to history,” teacher sponsor Lisa Robinson said. “Each year the aim is to expose myth, stereotypes, and miseducation, replacing it with historical facts often omitted from our history books.”
