Please join us for the unveiling of  one of our Impact Fund Projects- a community mural commemorating Dorothy I. Height Elementary School’s namesake.

The HEIGHT of Achievement is a mural and family paint project honoring Dr. Height, the school’s namesake, in collaboration with Creative Nomads, whose mission is to “enhance the professional development of arts entrepreneurs and to provide access to art, music, and cultural education and programming for youth and families.”

Together, members of Delta Sigma Theta (the sorority Dr. Height belonged to and served as President from 1947-54), 5th grade focused youth, families and teachers will work on a mural that will emphasize the excellence of character, achieving goals, and leaving a legacy. As 5th graders transition to middle school, they now have the opportunity to leave a legacy piece that will live in the halls of the school and remind them that as they move through life they will always have the opportunity to leave behind a legacy.
