“Students embody book’s lessons” (3/28, A-1) was a great article. I am glad to see that the hard-working students, staff and administration at Southeast High School are getting recognition for their efforts.
As graduate of Howard University, it is good to know that teachers in the Kansas City School District are encouraging our students to strive for admittance to competitive historically black colleges and universities, such as Howard, Hampton and Morehouse.
The rest of the country will be very impressed with Kansas City’s young people.
