Together We Rise!

Peoria High School’s theme for Black History Month 2017 is Together We Rise!

Staff and students coordinated a student assembly on Friday, February 17th. Guest speakers Aric  Faulkner(PHS alumni, ISU graduate, and PHS ELL Staffer) and Bradley student Andrea Morris (Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc and founder of Women Who Empower). Mr. Faulkner encouraged students to vote and get involved in community politics. Ms. Morris used her personal highs and lows to remind students that to be successful students had to avoid trouble and finish school. Performances by PHS Step Team, PSA Dance, PSA Drama and PHS  Raw Talent. Unfortunately, time restraints prevented a scheduled student march.
