From Our Superintendent / My Mentor – My Story

2020-06-18 13:00:48

Please take a moment to read Dr. Somers' story about his childhood mentor Sam Dunlap. In light of recent protests related to the untimely death of George Floyd and many other African-Americans, Dr. Somers shares the values and lessons Sam taught him, along with his thoughts on what Sam would say about recent events happening in our country.

Dr. Somers also takes a moment to answer the questions of what do we do now and where do we go from here.

"In D38, we are committed to actively contributing to the healing and repair that is desperately needed in our world today. At a local level, we strive to be a safe and inclusive community for each and every one of our students, to disrupt racism, and to support our community of color and all members of our community. We know that the fight against racism, oppression, and hate cannot fall by default on our community members of color. We must lead it together."
