3rd annual Parent Leadership Breakfast and Award Ceremony

The African American Parent Support Group hosted it's 3rd annual Parent Leadership Breakfast and Award Ceremony this morning at the Joyce Focht Instructional Center. The speakers for the breakfast were Representative Melody McCray-Miller, a former teacher and now the Representative of the 89th house district; Brian Black, President and CEO of the Urban League of Kansas; Kevin Myles, President of the Wichita Branch NAACP (Yours Truly); and Lichelle Alford, Principal of Buckner Performing Arts Academy.

The theme for the morning's event was "Moving Forward; Our Charge, Our Challenge, our Goal". Each of the speakers focused on strategies for the community, parents, and schools.

The Parent to Parent support group is a parent alliance brought together to support and advocate for the academic success of all African-American Children. The group was formed as a part of the 4-point plan to Eliminate the Achievement Gap drafted by the Wichita Branch NAACP and the Wichita Alliance of Black School Educators (WABSE).
