The 1st annual Black History Museum project was the brainchild of Shilanda Hall, a Parent Advocate employee who works for the “Center for College Access and Success” formerly known as the Chicago Teachers’ Center of Northeastern Illinois University.
Michele Clark’s counselor, Ms. Joyce Jordan and the program Manger of GEAR UP, Rhonda Thomas spearheaded the idea of showcasing the Michele Clark students’ talent to create the Black History Assembly program. With the collaborative efforts of several teachers and staff, it all took shape very quickly.
Ms. McLoyd wanted to make sure that with Michele Clark being a STEM school (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) that the program would highlight that point.
It was held at Michele Clark Magnet High School, which is located at 5101 West Harrison Street Chicago, IL 60644 on Friday, February 28th 2014 at 12:30pm
Parents were invited to tour the Museum and to join the student body in the Auditorium to enjoy the assembly.
