Young Celebrates Black History Month with Local Talent

Mr. Columbus Young, local musician and artist, shared his talents with the second grade classes at R. L. Young Elementary School on February 7, 2007. The second grade teachers, Mrs. Rebecca Armstrong, Ms. Vicki Freeman, Mrs. Diane Hobbs and Mrs. Theresa Vincent decided to focus on the accomplishments and talents of our local African-Americans to celebrate African-American History Month.
Mr. Young brought several of his paintings to share with the students and, delightfully, shared his trumpet talents with us, too! Thank you, Mr. Young. You have help enrich our lives.
On Thursday, February 15, 2007, Mr. Darren Douthitt, principal of Talladega High School read the Patricia Polacco book "Mr. Lincoln's Way"to our second grade classes. Our students listened attentively as Mr.Douthitt read the story and tied in some of his personal experiences as they related to the story.
For those of you that have not read this book, it is a wonderful story of how Mr. Lincoln, a black elementary school principal, helps to erase racial tension in his school while giving them something in which to be proud. Thank you, Mr. Douthitt! Please come back soon. And, by the way, you look like the principal in the book. Our students wanted you to know they said that!
