Vanden students mark Black History Month – Daily Republic

By Ryan McCarthy

Students gathered during lunch Wednesday at Vanden High School in Fairfield to mark events that include Black History Month. Aniyah Gusseaux, 17, president of the Black Student Union at the school, said the event was also intended to recognize Black Lives Matter and the student union. “It’s going really well,” she said. Students wore black clothing for the event, attended by more than 75 people. Bill Sarty, principal of Vanden High, said one of the aims of the gathering was to “keep it positive.” Teacher Mary Centeno, co-adviser to the Black Student Union, described the event as “very low-key.” Travis School District Trustee Ivery Hood said, “The kids seem to be enjoying it.”
