Race Forum with the Denver Nuggets

On January 20th WLA hosted retired NBA player Mark Randall, Lieutenant Governor Joe Garcia, and Nuggets players Randy Foye and Jameer Nelson to kick off Black History Month. There was a panel discussion about race and discrimination. The purpose of the event was to get students ready to study civil rights in Mr. Curtiss’ US History class. All WLA 10th graders attended.  Highlights were a shooting prize contest and hearing the message the players sent of not being persuaded by peer pressure and to seek help from teachers and mentors when you need it.
