The designation means that the school has completed the year-long initiative to eliminate hate and promote individuality and creativity within the school. Entergy was a sponsor for the school and assisted in coordinating events and activities tied to the “No Place for Hate” initiative. The school made heritage quilts, conducted a Black History program and held a food tasting night featuring authentic world cuisine. (Staff photo by Robin Shannon)
