About: Our art work reflects our belief that everyone should be able to go to school. We like coming to school every day, learning new things and making friends. We live in a very historic area. From our playground we can see the canons on the battlefield. Storer College is also very historic. It was the first school open to all races, colors, religions, men and women. Our art work reflects embracing diversity and honors the founders of Storer College. Our hand prints represent holding hands in friendship and acknowledging that we all have a right to an education. We included a quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. because a person’s character is what matters.
