Educator Bill Lee understood the need for us to know our history. A graduate of the segregated Lincoln School, he went on to serve as principal of an integrated West Frederick Middle School. Perhaps Mr. Lee's greatest legacy is the founding of @AarchSociety.
Join me to recognize and thank these individuals for truly "Paving the Way"! https://www.fredericknewspost.com/news/education/schools/public_k-12/local-students-of-integration-recall-their-experiences-through-a-contemporary-lens/article_aadf3dc7-86be-5373-8e02-fee2caa76390.html

Businessman George Dredden was a tireless community advocate. He earned a Wertheimer Award for his volunteer efforts. After a full career, Mr. Dredden published The County Globe newspaper for many years.
Pleased to participate in a virtual Farm Bureau Legislative Day and to share the County's increased investment in agriculture preservation and first time agriculture diversification grants to keep agriculture financially viable.
Great progress on the AARCH Heritage Center! Knowing our history and how we got here is key to our path forward.
@NissaQuill I'm sorry for any confusion. The FCHD does hold clinics for educators. Their instructions from the State are to prioritize Marylanders who are 75 and older in Phase 1B, Marylanders who are 65 and older in Phase 1C, and a minimum of 100 educators each week.
Each February we set aside special time to recognize Black History Month. Since we aren't able to celebrate in person this year, this video celebrates achievements of some of the amazing Black men & women who have called Frederick Co home. https://youtu.be/7srmrkkHPCs
