NSUE and NSUM will be open on Monday, February 6th.
In celebration of Black History Month, we will be spotlighting six members of our organization to get their own thoughts on the importance of Black History Month and what it means to them. Today in part one of six, we feature Jermaine Thomas from Natchitoches Junior High. "Black history symbolizes the meaning of the past, present, and future. It serves the purpose of being prideful in who you are, where you came from, and where you're heading in the future. Being a figure that is involved in black history allows me to acknowledge and represent work that was paid for many years ago by ancestors and forefathers from centuries ago. It gives me great pleasure in being a black man that represents the field of Education. We have to continue encouraging, motivating, and educating individuals of not just the black race, but of ALL races. Black history, in my opinion, represents equality and justice. The lives, faith, and beliefs that were placed on the line to make the story of what we now call "Black History" shall forever be appreciated and never forgotten! I'm grateful for Black History and this is the true epitome of what it symbolizes to me."
NSUE and NSUM will remain closed tomorrow, February 3rd, due to continued issues with repairs. For further information, please see the attached statement from Northwestern State University regarding the status of repairs.
