Black History Month 2023 flyer

This year’s Black History Celebration will focus on STEM, Nursing, Mortuary Science, and select CTE programs. We are excited to showcase guest speakers who are Black Professionals in these field. These professionals will share their educational and career experiences to encourage and inspire.

“We will always have STEM with us. Some things will drop out of the public eye and will go away, but there will always be science, engineering, and technology. And there will always, always be mathematics.” — Katherine Johnson, NASA Research, Mathematician

2015 Blacks comprised approximately 5% of science and engineering occupations and approximately 8% of computer system occupations in the United States.

Celebrate with us February 6, 9, 21, & 22!
