  • Senator Manchin and Blue Ridge Elementary
    Celebrate Black History Month
     BRE studentd and Manchin
    Gay Henderson, Blue Ridge Elementary Librarian, (all fifth grade  members of
    the student council) Hagen McGowan, Zachary Wick, Brenden Kerr, Korben
    Kaiser, Anna Raskovskiy, and principal, Susan Zigler.

    West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin recently recognized Blue Ridge
    Elementary in his visit to historic Storer College in Harpers Ferry on
    Friday, February 6th.  As part of a Black History Month celebration,
    Senator Manchin delivered remarks to be included in the Congressional
    to recognize the former college’s historical importance.

    During the event, Senator Manchin honored Gay Henderson, Blue Ridge
    Elementary School Librarian, for her work on a project called,
    “From Africa to Appalachia."

    The program, supported by a grant and local funding from the Eastern
    West Virginia Community Foundation and the Jefferson Arts Council,
    will bring a group of talented musicians from Mali in West Africa to the
    stage at Blue Ridge Elementary. International Bluegrass Award winner,
    Sammy Shelor will join the group. Together, they will perform for 310
    children grades ranging from second to fifth.

    Mrs. Henderson said the program will support Blue Ridge Elementary
    in its efforts to create an environment where students can see similarities
    and respect differences among diverse cultures. Blue Ridge Elementary is
    thrilled Mrs. Henderson and the fifth grade student council were able to
    represent the school during the Black History Month celebration and
    recognition of Storer College.
