Members of the Middle School Black Leadership and Cultural Committee met with School President Rick Commons and Head of Middle School Jon Wimbish to discuss diversity and incidents on campus relating to it. The meeting took place on March 10 in the Beyer Board Room. Student and adult members of BLACC spoke about diversity on campus and how it will affect the school’s future, especially regarding admissions.
“I think the outcome [of the meeting] was a better understanding of how the community feels, and some of our concerns, worries and questions were answered,” BLACC member Naomi Ogden ’20 said.
Toward the end of the meeting, students were able to ask Wimbish and Commons questions about the aforementioned topics using cards written during the last BLACC meeting. Both Commons and Wimbish offered insight into the changes coming to the school regarding diversity.
