The Greater Terre Haute NAACP Branch will host a community discussion on topics related to diversity, equity, and inclusion in our schools and the aquatic center. Several members of the Vigo County School Board plan to attend the NAACP meeting on Monday, July 15 at the Vigo County Public Library at 6:30 p.m. It is open to the public.

Joseph Williams, chairperson of the Education committee, commented that “this event will provide an opportunity for anyone interested in our education system to share concerns or ask questions of school officials.”

The NAACP’s Education goal: A free, high-quality, public education for all. Key components are equitably-funded, diverse, accessible, and affordable.

“The Aquatic Center was a topic of interest raised during a recent meeting,” revealed A. Theressa Bynum, Press and Publicity committee chairperson. “People wanted to know ‘who it’s for? and when is it available?’, so we knew we needed to talk with school officials.”
