BLACK STUDENT UNION
The Black Student Union is an organization comprised of members who are interested in or already share a love for Black culture. Our goal is to celebrate Black culture, educate students on Black history, promote academic excellence, and teach leadership skills through interactive projects and activities inside and outside of school. We also participate in activities created by our Student Government to support our school and local community.
