Mayor Sarno states, “Superintendent Daniel Warwick and I want to thank Shawn Pace, Site Manager at Eastman Indian Orchard, and the team at Eastman for holding this 2nd Annual Black History Month Oratorical contest for our students at the High School of Sci Tech. This is a tremendous opportunity for our students to not only enhance their writing and communications skills but also learning more about our history and the many contributions African American’s have provided to the disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. I also want to thank Western New England University President Dr. Robert Johnson for hosting this event. This was a wonderful event and it was great to see the comradery between the students. They were close and very supportive of each other.”
