Hazel Grove Elementary students recently celebrated the exceptional contributions made by black Americans. The celebration included an all-school assembly, which was planned, organized and executed by students from all grades.
The Lee’s Summit High School Jazz Trio, featuring Josh Nazworthy, Justin Henson and Kellen Merrell, also participated in the assembly. Students chose to honor Buck O’Neil, Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Simone Biles, Joan Higginbotham and Langston Hughes at the event.
