NEW NAACP REPS
WCHS has two new NAACP Reps, Kia Coleman and Patrice Williams! NAACP Reps serve as liaisons between WCHS families, the PTSA, and school administrators. They work to provide forums and activities that help students from marginilized communities achieve academic and social success in college, in their careers and in life.
Kia and Patrice will attend the monthly NAACP Parent Council meeting and share important information and resources from that forum with the community. WCHS families may visit the NAACP Parent Council website at any time for Parent Council meeting minutes and the most up-to-date Parent Council resources and information.
Patrice, a mother of seniors, decided to become a NAACP Rep because the collective action of other parents and community organizations made a difference in her children’s HS experience. She’s grateful that the aforementioned community gave (and continues to give) her insight and information about some of the more “lesser known and less publicized” opportunities and experiences available to HS students and points out, all she had to do was show up! She looks forward to meeting more parents and hopes to join together to ignite, excite and motivate more students for success.
Kia, the mother of a WCHS freshman, is honored to serve as an NAACP Rep and excited support WCHS families and students. She looks forward to meeting, learning from, and working with the broader WCHS community.
Kia and Patrice invite all parents, teachers, and students, who are interested in serving as an ally for African American and other marginalized students, to join them by attending various meetings, programs and events throughout the year. Families can also contact Kia and Patrice at [email protected] to capture the needs of their students or to resolve challenges that impact the education of their children.
