Black Student Union Assembly gallery

Every February, St. Charles West honors Black History Month: a month that commemorates African Americans and helps raise awareness for black history.  However, this school year, the Black Student Union hosted their own spirit week, gospel choir, and to top it all off: a black history month assembly.  This was the first annual assembly to commemorate black history month, and a lot of planning was done ahead.

“This has been in production for over a year now”, says senior Lea Mitchell, “I am so excited to see everyone come together and be one big SCW family and I can’t wait to see this idea become bigger, even after we’re gone”.

During the assembly, students played knockout, musical chairs, guess that throwback song, tug of war, and had the SCW Dance and Drill team perform their number made specifically for this assembly.  Overall, the experience was one to be remembered, and a tradition that SCW will continue on throughout the years.

“We are inclusive, one big family, and this club exposes you to different kinds of culture you haven’t experienced before”, says president Jillian Shivers and adviser Mrs. Van Houten.
