Forest Students Featured in Local Publication
Three Forest students are featured on the front page of the May issue of the Unite
, a publication meant for Connecting and Empowering African American Families in Southwest Missouri
. In the article, Rhameka Shelley, Erin McGownd and Anna Crosby discuss The C.A.S.T., Cultural Awareness Student Training. The C.A.S.T. is a workshop developed as a result of the Diversity Fellowship in which Rhameka Shelley was awarded. The C.A.S.T. is a racial and cultural identity workshop for African American adolescents promoted through Springfield Public Schools and offered at the Robert J. Murney Clinic at Forest Institute and later this summer at the Springfield Community Center.
Way to go, ladies!
