Nov. 11th: Veterans Day

Here is a video featuring some Veterans at RTC.  Do you recognize them? There is no school on November 11th, Veterans Day.  This song was written by Katherine Lee Bates, an English teacher, in 1895. It is called "America the Beautiful". Here are the lyrics:
O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!
O beautiful for pilgrim feet
Whose stern impassioned stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness.
America! America!
God mend thine ev'ry flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law.

Happy Birthday, Rosa Parks!


Born on Feb. 4, 1913, this year would have been Rosa Parks’ 100th birthday.  

On Dec. 1, 1955, Parks refused to give up her seat to a white passenger on a city bus in Montgomery, Alabama. This led to a 13-month boycott of the Montgomery bus system that would help spark the civil rights movement. 
Recently President Barack Obama visited the bus that Rosa Parks sat in.

February is Black History Month. Have you seen some displays around campus?
