Delaware County Council Recognizes Penn Wood Middle School’s “Young, Gifted, and Black” Program
Penn Wood Middle School received a County Council Resolution for their program titled “Young, Gifted, and Black,” which celebrates Black History through dance, music, and drama.
The program, under the direction of Judy Jordan and Renee Wayne, features 25 talented Penn Wood Middle School students who will be performing for their student body, faculty, and staff at Penn Wood in celebration of Black History Month.
Ms. Wayne wrote the show, curating and selecting inspirational African Americans to be featured, in order to give the students a sense of living history.
Ms. Wayne selected African Americans under the age of 21 who are outstanding in their fields. Students will share the contributions of these inspirational young people through reflections of dance, song, poetry, biographical readings, and short dramatic pieces.
