One component of our vision as a Foundation is to strengthen connections among Central students, alumni, parents, and friends. Having that vision means being able to recognize where improvements are needed.
The Foundation Board stands fully behind current students and recent alumni who are Black, Indigineous, and people of color (“BIPOC”) speaking out about their experiences at Central. We want, and need, to hear your voices.
When Ms. Christine Vang starts in her new role as Central’s principal, the Board plans to reach out to her to voice our support for these students and alumni who have shared their stories. We also plan to offer whatever input and resources we can provide to work toward the goal of all students – and in particular, BIPOC students – feeling valued, supported, and encouraged at Central.
This year, Central Honors Philando will be virtual! Save the date – it’ll be August 23, 2020. You can RSVP and find details on Facebook.
