Brooklyn Berryhill and Jerrick White would like to invite you to join T.A.B.L.E . This is an interactive club that broadcasts the various opportunities offered in school and out. It's our goal to educate students on black history as well as discuss the effects of modern day issues. It is important to us that we provide a platform not only for minority students but for all students to learn their history and what they can do to be the change. We have an interest meeting Thursday at 3:45 in the cafeteria to further explain the club and answer any questions. We look forward to seeing you there!!
