Students Participate in Martin Luther King Day Celebration

     Students from the Primary Building along with Intermediate students and Fifth Grade Students were invited by Dr. Dave Nesheim, Social Science Professor at Chadron State College, to perform during the Martin Luther King Day Celebration hosted by Chadron State College.
     CSC students, Job Corp students, and community members began the celebration with a march from Common Cents to Memorial Hall.  In addition to speeches from Dr. Randy Rhine, President of Chadron State College, Dr. Dave Nesheim, Social Science Professor at CSC, Brek Brixius, NCAP Community Services Director, and two students from Pine Ridge Job Corp, the elementary students performed three songs, directed by Chris Dickerson, Elementary Music Teacher at Chadron Public Schools.  The audience joined in with the singing and listened to the story "Follow the Drinking Gourd," a story about the slaves' escape to freedom via the Underground Railroad, read by Mrs. Dickerson.
