Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. dreamed of an America where people would “not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” We have to continuously ask ourselves, where we are on the path to realizing his (and our) dream. Black History Month was a time for everyone to learn more, get involved, and take the path less traveled to create a world where we work together with understanding, compassion, and fortitude, taking steps forward to a more unified nation.
Our efforts can't stop with a single month's celebration. There must be a continuous voice spoken and consistent actions made that permeate our daily decisions to minimize bias, stereotypes, and prejudices that complicate our ability to effectively and efficiently excel together. Plum Borough School District is taking steps to make change, connect, and problem solve, making a difference in our District.
