The Anne Arundel County Public Schools has announced that they will be hosting a Legacy Luncheon on September 11th to honor the contributions of African-American educators.  From the release:

Anne Arundel County Public Schools and the Wiley H. Bates Legacy Center will honor African-American educators and other school system personnel who worked from the 1930s to the 1960s at a special Legacy Luncheon and Social on Saturday, September 11, 2010.

The event, which runs from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., will be held at the Wiley H. Bates Heritage Park Senior Activities Center, located at 119 S. Villa Street in Annapolis.

“These are educators who toiled in inferior conditions for inferior pay, yet whose contributions continue to have a positive impact on our society today,” Superintendent Kevin M. Maxwell said. “The passion they showed for our children was second to none, and they deserve our unending gratitude.”

Tickets for the event are $30 per person. For more information or to submit the name of someone to be honored at the luncheon, contact Carlesa Finney, Director of the Office of Equity Assurance and Human Relations, at 410-222-5353.
