More Additions to the media center

Thanks to the generosity of our art teacher, Mr. Watkins, the media center's entrance is now graced with works created by some of his most talented art students. The prints were done during Black History Month commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation and the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington.
