Jefferson Forest Students Celebrate Diversity

Bedford Co, VA - Students at Jefferson Forest High School celebrated their unique talents Tuesday.

The Celebrate Diversity assembly included singing, dancing, and theatrical performances. The event was sponsored by the school's Unity Club.

The festival started as a Black History Month celebration, but turned into a chance to share anything that makes you different.

"Here at Jefferson Forest, it's an accepting place. Where all, everybody's accepted. Everybody has a place here at Jefferson Forest. Everybody's talents are recognized," said an attendee.

The Unity Club holds an assembly every year.

Last year's topic was bullying prevention.
