Congrats to Zyan Barrett of Thomas Jefferson High School. He is our next recipient of the Mikey and Bob's Spectacular Super Special Stand Out Student Award presented by UPMC!
Zyan Barrett has helped to create a Multicultural Student Union at our high school to welcome students and support students. His goal was to help educate others on various cultures, but also to make sure there is a place where minority students can go to share concerns, support one another, and make sure all feel as though they are a part of the school community no matter what their race, religion, sexual orientation, and lifestyle. He is working on plans for a cultural festival this winter, rock garden at the school to showcase that every student is represented and the mix is beautiful, featured foods in the cafeteria that showcase a culture each month, and guest speakers from places like the Holocaust Center and Heinz History.
