    CJHS Gifted and Talented Students recently staged a Black History Month assembly at the school.

In recognition of Black History Month, the Columbus Junior High School Gifted and Talented students presented an assembly that acknowledged the history that surrounds the month of February, the endeavors of the Buffalo Soldiers and Tuskegee Airmen, and the influence of African music that is profoundly evident in all genres today.

The guest speaker was Columbus Independent School District Trustee Joel Usher, who spoke about knowing who you are, understanding your roots, and making a positive imprint on life.

Principal, Gary Leopold, closed the assembly reminding students that it is not the color of your skin but the content of your character that matters the most.
