| February 27, 2011 | 0 Comments

Chesapeake Science Point Public Charter School has a tradition of inviting VIP guest speakers during the Month of February to celebrate Black History month. On Thursday, the Honorable Carl O. Snowden, the Director of Office for Civil Rights at the Office of the Attorney General, visited CSP and addressed CSP High School Students.

Mr. Snowden delivered an inspirational speech during which he presented some heartbreaking personal experiences along with some unknown challenges that Oprah Winfrey, Rosa Parks, and Dr. Martin Luther King had to endure. He also mentioned the importance of protecting the constitutional rights of all, and how destructive racism and discrimination could be for our society. During his speech, Mr. Snowden presented some mathematical questions that were relevant to the social values he introduced and gave an example on how such social values were integrated in our entire lives at all times. “It was impossible to avoid goose bumps throughout Mr. Snowden’s powerful speech.” said Mrs. Griffin CSP special programs teacher.

Chesapeake Science Point Public Charter School, located in Anne Arundel County at 7321 Parkway Drive South, Hanover, Maryland, is a nationally recognized public charter school with a strong focus on science, math and technology. The school consistently places at the top in test scores in several categories at the state level and has competed and placed high in mathematics competitions locally, nationally and internationally.
