Today we're celebrating Black Excellence in our school. You may have noticed fellow students and staff wearing black and demonstrating their allyship in fighting racial discrimination and violence. Today is also about celebrating the achievements of African Canadians in our community like this next person. If you've done any sports in Metro Vancouver, you've probably been inside a community centre, tennis court, or volleyball bubble named after this eminent black Canadian. Harry Jerome was a black Canadian track and field athlete who participated in the Olympics three times. He received a bronze in the 100 metre race in 1964, received gold at the Commonwealth and Pan American games, and set several world records. Later in his career, Jerome focused on promoting youth and amateur sports.  What an inspiration!

Head down to the Photo Room C118 today to have your picture taken for Black Excellence Day.
