We are very excited for the next event in the celebration of the 50th anniversary of Wellesley METCO. This event hopes to provide an opportunity for Boston and Wellesley families to come together and engage in a conversation about race and celebrating 50 years of Wellesley METCO.
Please join us on March 30th, 7pm – 9pm (everyone welcome – students too!)
Wellesley High School Library
50 Rice Street, Wellesley
The event will open with a welcome from Kalise Wornum, METCO K-12 Director for Wellesley Public Schools and other members of the celebration committee, followed by a keynote from Rev. Dr. Pashington Obeng, Wellesley resident of 29 years, Associate Minister at Wellesley Hills Congregational Church and Professor of Africana Studies at Wellesley College. The evening will include table conversations facilitated by Wellesley Public School faculty, parents and community members.
Our hope is that by coming together and providing a space for dialogue and learning we will build stronger relationships and understanding.
Please help us spread the word about the event and encourage your friends and neighbors to attend.
