Westminster Christian Academy will host its annual celebration of Black History Month, We Are One, on Thursday, February 13 at 7 p.m.
We Are One is an opportunity to explore different aspects of African American culture and their impact on St. Louis. In previous years, African American migration throughout the city and the African American church were highlighted. This year, the history and impact of African American educators and educational institutions will be discussed.
Dr. Sharonica Hardin-Bartley, superintendent of the University City school district, will be the keynote speaker. Dr. Hardin-Bartley has spent the past 20 years relentlessly championing educational excellence and equality for all children and currently serves 2,800 students and more than 400 teachers and staff.
She earned her undergraduate degree in elementary education from Harris-Stowe State University, a master’s degree in education administration from Saint Louis University, and a doctoral degree from the University of Missouri – St. Louis. In addition to her professional roles, Dr. Hardin-Bartley is most proud to be a mom and wife.
Westminster is committed to fostering a community that reflects the kingdom of God. Throughout the school year, this commitment is reinforced with opportunities for education and celebration of the diverse cultures that make up the Westminster community.
