Ten William Floyd High School students were recently honored for their academic achievements at the Town of Brookhaven’s 30th annual Black History Month Celebration held virtually this year due to the pandemic.
The recipients, Armand Chancellor, Madison Gray, Chedey Green, Patricia Jean Baptiste, Jada Love, Matthew Murrell, Saniyyah Pitner, Ayanna Robinson, Danazia Tucker and Olivia Washington, were selected for their academic excellence in achieving a cumulative grade point average of 90 or higher.
The theme of this year’s Black History Month celebration was “The Black Family: Representation, Identity, and Diversity,” which included performances. The Commission also recognized its honoree and keynote speaker, Suffolk County Sheriff Errol Toulon Jr., Ed.D., who shared inspiring words for the students.
The Town of Brookhaven Black History Commission is an organization designed to celebrate and acknowledge the contributions of Black Americans, both nationally and locally, while fostering an appreciation of Black culture and heritage in the younger generation.
Congratulations to the students!
