We sent this message to our Blue Devils for Black History Month 2022:
"Reverend Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, Thurgood Marshall, Kobe Bryant, Barack Obama, Condoleezza Rice, Alex English, Beyonce Knowles...
Each year in honor of Black History Month the members of the Kindness Club at Dreher invite Blue Devils to be inspired by those who came before us and paved the way for us. They had a dream. Blue Devils, what's yours?"
Here are the dreams of some of our Blue Devils:
Go to Clemson and become either a Nurse or Physical Therapist (Ana Creed).
I want to get a job (anonymous).
To be in the NBA (anonymous).
To become a brain surgeon (anonymous)
My dream is to be on Broadway (Emma Walsh).
To inspire and create conversation (Kathleen Lee).
My #1 dream is to go to NYU Tisch and become a well known indie film/play/stage/theatre actress, and to be in a movie that makes it into a really good film festival such as TIFF or Sundance (anonymous).
My dream is to one day find my biological mother and father (Katherine Smith).
Our students rose to the challenge of Black History Month by designing posters for the doors and hallways that highlight important figures and events in Black history. Enjoy just a few of them in the photo gallery below.
