HHS celebrates Black History Month with “I Have A Dream Extravaganza”
Hahnville High School speech teacher, Mr. Brian Lumar, along with students, faculty, and staff brought a bit of fantasy into the school by presenting the first annual “I Have A Dream Extravaganza”.

The purpose of the program was to reflect on times gone by and honor the great achievements of African-Americans throughout our nation’s history.  Today, it is still evident of what such people as the black historians have left on our nation constantly overcoming insurmountable odds in their fight for freedom.  Their sacrifice, courage, and skill will always be appreciated. 

Overall, we used Black History to educate our youth about how much further our citizens and country have come along.

The students really urged each other to draw inspiration from not only our African American Leaders, but all leaders in our past and present society because it is a testimony of their willingness to fight and die for all Americans life, liberty, and freedom.
