Students and faculty take time to remember historical heroes

Mason’s class council held a celebration of the March on Washington’s 50th anniversary with a picture gallery at The Ridge on Jan. 24.

The photo exhibit consisted of different black and white photos from Martin Luther King’s era and that of President Barrack Obama.

The historical pictures were some that students have seen throughout their elementary years. Captions and dates were shown underneath the pictures so visitors could read about the story behind each photo and see when the pictures were taken.
